From the Preface.
For several years past, one of the most valuable features of "The Painters Magazine" has been its department of Questions Answered, to which its subscribers have been invited and encouraged to send the various knotty problems and difficulties that they have met with in their daily business. No effort nor expense has been spared to answer every question submitted, and to supply the subscribers with thoroughly up-to-date and practical information based on present day American usage.
