Kellogg & Randall, Publishers, 17 Minor St., Philadelphia

The undersigned, having examined Messrs. Kellogg & Randall's Survey of Hillsdale County, take pleasure in recommending their maps to the citizens of this county, as being in our opinion a very accurate, reliable and practical Map, or complete County Directory, and well worthy their liberal patronage.  Considering the expense attending its survey, procuring so accurately all the Names, Localities, Distances, Town Plots, Farm Lines, views, & c., and the limited sale it must necessarily meet with on account of its being entirely a local work, we think they offer it very reasonable, and have subscribed for the Map.
