Most of the articles in this little volume were kindly contributed by the respective writers expressly for this purpose: and as these writers include some of the most respected and distinguished in the land, it is unnecessary for the Editor to do more than to express her acknowledgments for their generous and valuable aid, leaving their contributions to speak for themselves.
The Editor has interspersed some trifles of her own which she hopes may be leniently regarded. The volume is intended as an agreeable and instructive Miscellany, for presentation, free from all sectarian prejudices, and such an one as may contribute to the moral and intellectual progress of “ Young America."
Woodvale, Roxbury, September, 1847.
