PREFACE.

The Editor of “SHARPE's LONDON MAGAZINE” greets her subscribers on the termination of her first half-yearly task; hoping she has done well, yet promising to do better—inasmuch as her resources will be increased, and her plans more thoroughly developed during the year that approaches. She has already received much valuable co-operation, and can safely assure her readers, that in every respect the next volume will equal, and, in some of its arrangements, surpass, that which is now a candidate for public favour.

Will the subscribers permit her to say that she never “makes up” the table of contents, or cuts the leaves of “the last number," without surprise at the small price charged for a magazine combining so much artistic and literary attractionevery page of which is liberally paid for.

If “the public” will call to mind, that the Contributors forming the “ Staff” of the Magazine, are among the best and most popular authors of the day; and, that, in addition to what is brilliant and amusing, there is much solid and useful information, hallowed by religious but not sectarian principles, in every Parteach adorned by two delicate line engravings, she thinks “the public” will agree with her, in considering “ SHARPE'S LONDON MAGAZINE” to be the cheapest periodical published in London, and that the publisher deserves cordial and extensive patronage, risking, as he does, a large capital, to enable families to obtain so much of the best and purest literature, for the sum of ONE Shilling!

The Editor would entreat the attention of Parents to the fact that she watches every page with minute care, so that nothing can creep in that may not be read aloud in the domestic circle. She congratulates her readers on the termination of “another year,” and prays that they may meet together at the commencement of the new, with increased happiness, and increased trust one in the other.
