We bespeak for these drawings a careful examination, not only for their delicacy and accuracy of finish, but also because they illustrate several important improvements in carriage construction. A close examination will show that great care and skill has been exercised in making the drawings. It will be observed that in showing the gilded work, the artist has used a material that does it most perfectly. These drawings are not placed in a very conspicuous place, and are not of a glaring or pretentious character, notwithstanding which facts we are certain that they will be appreciated by those interested in such matters.
