A FEW WORDS WITH OUR READERS.
This is the last number of the fourth volume of the Guardian. Thus far has a kind Providence brought us. Let us be thankful for the past, and hopeful in view of the future.
It will be seen from the New Prospectus, on the cover of the present number, that the Guardian enters upon Vol. V. on the 1st of January. It will be seen also that it will be conducted hereafter by the original founder and Senior Editor alonecircumstances having made it necessary for the other two to withdraw as editors.
We respectfully ask all our friends to continue that interest which they have hitherto so kindly manifested in favor of our Magazine.
If any wish to discontinue they will please inform us before the issue of the next No. According to the common custom, we always continue to send, unless we are requested to discontinue. This is by far the least trouble, since there are but few who drop off in comparison with those who continue. We are glad, of course, to retain all the names on our list; but if any wish us to stop, we again earnestly ask them to let us know in time. A few in former years, have permitted us to send on two, three, four, five, and even more numbers, and then sent back, and asked us to stop! No one, certainly, can regard this as right. There is now ample time for any who wish to discontinue to do 80, before the January No. is sent to them—which will be a short time before Christmas.
In a few instances mistakes have occurred in the bills sent out by the clerk. Our subscribers will please bear in mind that such things are never done intentionally; and such mistakes are always cheerfully corrected. Missing numbers we also supply, when by some means or other they have not reached their destination.
We promise to do what we can to make the Guardian interesting and instructive the coming year. The January No. will contain a beautiful steel engraved embellishment. We have been assured, by many friends, that the Guardian is popular among its readers, and much valued. We are happy to hear this; and shall be encouraged to enter with new zeal and spirit upon the labors of another year. If all those who love the Guardian will be so kind as to use their influence in increasing its circulation, we shall remember the favor. Will each one send us a few, or a club, of new names for the next year?-as a New Year present.
