We have a great many Agents actively at work, who clear for themselves from $5 to $8 per day. Those most successful, take sample copies of the books, and when they ascertain how many are wanted, order the books direct from us, and deliver them at the time agreed upon. Still, some Agents prefer to order quantities at the start, and sell them from house to house, as they go. There is hardly a family that cannot be induced to buy one or more of the kinds, and we have been informed of instances where a single family has Subscribed for the whole list of Books, yielding the Agent a very handsome profit.
There is no employment more pleasant or profitable than that of selling books in the way proposed.
