In presenting this, our first Directory of Clinton County, we claim for it the following: First, That the Farmers' Directory is as complete and reliable as personal canvass and careful search can make it. Secondly, The Directories of Clinton and Lyons contain the exact business and resident address of all mercantile and profession persons as furnished by themselves. Thirdly, The Classified Directory gives all the business men in the entire county, under proper headings.

The printing has been done by Mr. J. C. Hopkins, of Lyons, and furnishes a good exhibit of the typographical skill which has been attained in our city.

Our most cordial thanks are extended to the merchants of Clinton, Lyons, and the county generally, for the liberal patronage bestowed on the work. F. E. Owen
