“Many of our customers having complained that the ordinary Hymn Slides are printed from such small type that they are very difficult to read on the Screen when only an Oil Light is used, we have had these Hymns specially printed from a Special Black Type, so that they will easily be seen from any Screen, and with any light. In some cases all the Hymn is not printed, as only five or six verses could be got on to see well in this type, but the verses selected are the best we could put on.”
