At the beginning of this work, it was mentioned, that the zoological arucies would be contributed by Dr. Godman of Philadelphia. It has now become our painful duty to inform our readers, that we are deprived of his valuable assistance by his death, which took place on the 17th of April, 1830. The articles in this department will, however, oe communicated by a gentleman whom Dr. Godman himself designated to supply his place.
The recent great and rapid changes in the state of the world, which continually present new accumulations of matter of general interest, and the laborious nature of the present undertaking, having rendered additional assistance necessary, to enable us to bring out the volumes with sufficient despatch, Mr. Bradford, whose name now appears on the title-page, is engaged to aid permanently in the remainder of the work. We hope to be able, therefore, to gratify the wishes of our readers, in future, by the publication of a volume every three months.
Boston, Dec 1830
