The completion of another Volume of The Gentleman's Magazine calls for another prefatorial address to our Subscribers and Friends. We respectfully offer the list of Contents to their notice, as evidence of the exertions made to deserve their favors.

Several new contributors, of distinguished name, have graced the pages of this volume with their lucubrations. We look forward to a continuance of their
correspondence with much satisfaction; and hope also to consociate them with others of no mean degree who have promised us a taste of their quality. We depend, also, on the continuance of the good offices of our old friends and fellow laborers, to whose kindness we attribute the chiefest portion of our success.
The insertion of “ The Anniversary Register and Monthly Calendar of American Chronology,” forms a novel feature in the history of magazines, and we believe that it has given unlimited satisfaction to our friends-an assurance that repays us for the extraordinary expenditure of time and labor necessary in the compilation.
