*** We are now in receipt (24th inst.), of a postal money order for $1.5o, from Pasadena, Cal., dated First month 18. As there was no accompanying letter, we are unable to credit the sender with the amount. Perhaps this notice will reach his, or her, attention.
*** “I am very much pleased with the appearance o the paper in its new dress,” writes a valued friend in Baltimore, and adds: “It never looked as well as it does now, and I think it improves steadily from year to year, in interest and value.” This is a friendly word, indeed, and we can only hope it is not unmerited.
*** So many requests for the review of “ Hugh Wynne" come to us that we have sent to press a second edition of the small pamphlet, and will now be able, we think, to answer all requests for it. We make no charge for it, but if any who send choose to enclose a stamp for postage, envelope, etc, we are obliged. We will cheerfully forward to names that may be furnished us.
