Civil War Harper's Weekly, January 9, 1864

Today, these papers are an invaluable tool for students and researchers wanting more insight into the war.

Agents should be careful in directing their orders for our Original and "only Genuine" Extra Large Size Stationery Prize Packages, which have become so popular through the fine quality and value of their contents. As we have several imitators, who copy our Styles, Advertisements, Premiums, &c., for the purpose of deceiving Agents, we are the only manufacturers of the "Celebrated Rickards Prize Packages," and none are genuine unless bought direct from us. Those parties who advertise to give a "Premium Watch" to agents will not do so unless the agent first pays them from $40 to $50 in cash. This "we challenge any of them to deny." We will present a case of 100 of our Finest Packages to any agent who obtains a watch from them without first paying the above-named amount. Their attempt to present premiums, after our long-established custom, is in this case but a poor dodge. We still do as we have done for years past, present free to every one who acts as our agent a Fine Gold or Silver Hunting-Case Watch, "Genuine English Movements," and warranted a correct time-keeper. These watches are presented on the spot or sent with the first order. No one else does this. Our Wonderful Packages contain more really valuable articles than any half dozen others ever sold. Among the surprising contents of each package will be found Fine Stationery, Pens, Pencils, Envelopes, Ladies' Fashion Plates, Designs for Needle-work, Cottage Keepsakes, Household Companions, Letter-Writer's Instructor, Parlor Amusements, Gent's Pocket Calendars for 1864, Union Emblems, Camp Companions for Soldiers, Military Likenesses, Games, Army Advice, Rare Recipes, Many Ways to get Rich, Yankee Notions, Fancy Articles, Rich and Costly Presents of Fashionable Jewelry, &c., &c., all together worth many dollars, for only 25c. Agents make immense profits. 100 to 200 per cent. allowed. We guarantee smart agents can make $15 per day. Our regular agents average that. Our Packages stand same as ever, above all others for quality and quantity of contents. Agents wanted in every camp and town in the country. Goods sent safe to all parts of the army. Send for our Great New Circular for 1864, containing Extra Premium inducements, free. S. C. RICKARDS & CO., 102 Nassau St., N. Y.
