A Much Esteemed Employe of Iiunsburgh
5S Uro. Iloslgus Becauso of Ill-Health.
It speaks well for the employ6s who havo tho
personal regard as well as tho confidence of
tho employers, ana oven better for tho employ
ers who havo tho regard of their employ6s. It
shows they do not allow tho pressure of busi
ness and tho anxiety for mouoy-making to
harden their hearts, and that amid all tho bustle
and strugglo for wealth they regard tho feel
ings of those whom they call in to assist them
in their work. An instance of tho mutual es
teem and regard which grows up between em
ployer and employ6 1b shown in tho following
correspondence, which will bo read with Inter
est by thousands of Washington peoplo who
know well and favorably both parties to it;
Messrs. Lansburgh & Tiro.:
Dkak Fjuknds: My fast failing health compels
tho performance of tho present painful duty of
tendering to you my resignation of tho position

erosity, and thoughtful kindness, which I havo
fully appreciated, and for tho same, 1 beg you,
kind friends, to accept tho best thanks my heart
As in the past I have over tried to furthoryour
interests to tho best of my ability, bo bo assured
that In tho future, witli my gratoful thanks for
your muny kindnesses, you shall havo also, dear
friends, my sincere ana best wishes for your
happiness and prosperity.

It pains us ullthomoro since wo learn that ill

It is gratifying to know that, though you leave
our employ, wo will still retuin your good-will

ployes. Iot alono will wo miss you, but tho rest of
your associates will likewise regret that you will
