"E. L. Walrath & Co , Manufacturers of Gold Pens, No. 3 Granger Block. In 1852, E. L. Walrath & Co , purchased the interest and good will of their predecessors in this line of business in Syracuse, Messrs. Benedict & Barney. Mr. Walrath has labored and experimented for several years to produce a gold pen characterized by the same flexibility and action as the quill, and has brought out the result of his thought and experiments in his famous quill-spring pen, which is acknowledged by those familiar with its use to be a very superior article. Pens of this peculiar construction, pointed with iridium (thevheaviest and most durable metal known) may be used with pleasure and satisfaction by the penman during a lifetime. There is no such thing as wearing the point further than a smooth surface, and the peculiar flexibility imparted by Mr. Walrath to his pens render them very desirable both for ease of writing and durability. Messrs. Walrath & Co. are the only manufacturers of pens in the county of Onondaga." fountainpennetwork.com
