PREFACE.



' The SECOND issDE of Wii-liam's Fort Wayne Directory is pre-
Bented to the public with the belief that it will be found as correct
and reliable as any publication of the kind in the country. Our aim.
has been to make it a useful Book of Reference, and such that those
who have once consulted its pages would be constrained to resort to
it in their daily business transactions, to obtain the facilities it afford-
ed. Uow far we have succeeded in our undertaking the public will
determine from the practical tests to which the work will be si;b-
mitted by them, and to that ordeal we cheerfully submit it, and con-
fidently anticipate a favorable decision.

The present volume will be found to contain about three thousand
and two hundred names of citizens, whose locations could be fixed,
and upon this basis, experience gained in other cities, would justify
us in estimating the present population of the City of Fort Wayne
at fourteen thousand five hundred sovis, which fact indicates the
growth and commercial importance of the city.

The work embraces a General Directory, containing a full list of
the names and locations of the inhabitants of the City ; a complet
Business Directory, embracing the name of each person and firm
doing business in Fort Wayne ; with a City Guide, containing the
names of all Streets, Avenues and Alleys, .-with their location and
termini ; also the names and locations of all the Public Institutions,
Churches, Societies, etc., and a complete List of the Post Oflices in
the United States and Teiritories.

To our Agent, Mr. H. Thornton Bennett, (who has for the
last six years assisted in the publication of the Cincinnati Directory,
and whose qualifications for the undertaking are unsurpassed by any
one in the business,) belongs the credit of collecting, and preparing
for the press the materials of this work, and we cheerfully accord the
merit of it to him.

We return our thanks to the Press of the City for their flattering no-
tices during the canvass, and also to the business men and citizens
for their support of the work ; and sincerely hope that the Directory
will be found, not only a useful auxilliary in the transaction of busi-
ness, but that it may contribute somewhat to the growth of the beau-
tiful City of Fort Wayne. *
