FROM JANUARY TO JUNE INCLUSIVE.
BY J. T. & E. BUCKINGHAM.
PRINTED AND PUBLISHED BY
J. T. AND E. BUCKINGHAM.
In presenting this second volume of the New-England Magazine, the pledge given at the commencement of the work is redeemed. It was an experiment of quite uncertain result; but we promised to give it a year's probation. The
year has expired, and the event, if it have not brought the realization of our hopes, has not disappointed our expectations. The circulation of the Magazine has increased monthly. It is yet far from being a source of pecuniary profit; but the experiment thus far encourages us to enter on another year, with no less of hope and with more of confidence.
It was originally intended to embellish the Magazine with a series of Portraits. This intention it has been impossible to fulfil. There is some difficulty in procuring original likenesses, and more in obtaining correct copies of originals. The fastidiousness of individuals in two or three instances has frustrated our design. But with all these discouragements, the design will not be abandoned. We make no promises, the fulfilment of which depends upon the whims and caprices of others. A reliance on our own resources is the only basis of any pledge we may offer to the public.
We tender our acknowledgements to many friends, for gratuitous assistance, and solicit a continuance of their kindness.
