ASTOR. LENOX AND
DISTRICT OF MASSACHUSETTS, TO WIT:
District Clerk's Office. Be it remembered, that on the twentysixth day of November, A. D. 1828, in the fiftythird year of the Independence of the United States of America, Samuel G. GOODRICH, of the said district, has deposited in this office the title of a book, the right whereof he claims as proprietor, in the words following, to wit:
• THE LEGENDARY, consisting of Original Pieces, principally illustrative of American History, Scenery, and Manners. Edited by N. P. Willis. Volume II.'
In conformity to the act of the Congress of the United States, entitled ' An act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned ;' and also to an act, entitled . An act supplementary to an act, entitled, “ An act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned ;” and extending the benefits thereof to the arts of designing, engraving, and etching historical and other prints.'
JNO. W. DAVIS, Clerk of the District of Massachusetts.
The subscriber tenders his thanks to the contributors to the Token for 1829, and now solicits their aid, and that of others, in preparing the volume for 1830. It is his belief that a work in all respects much superior to the preceding ones, may yet be executed, by due exertion. It is important that communications be forwarded as early as March next. The publisher will be allowed to remark that short articles will be preferred-prose pieces should not exceed ten or fifteen pages.
S. G. GOODRICH. Boston, December 1, 1828.
