TO THE READER.

THE TIME has again come round, for us to submit to the Public eye our Collected Sayings and Doings of the last six months.

In our former Preface, we intimated a hope,-a belief, that our Christmas VOLUME would be even more interesting than that of MIDSUMMER. We trust our prophecy will be recognised as “fulfilled.” Our heart has been in our work. It is not therefore a matter for surprise if we should succeed in pleasing.

[merged small][ocr errors]

Let us again predict that, when our next Volume appears, we shall excel even more than we do now. Perfection is worth striving after ; and as we are supported by a powerful body of Choice Spirits, , we shall pursue it with untiring and unceasing energy.
