A NEW PROPOSITION.
THE terms on which the Am. Bib. Repository is now supplied to subscribers, who receive it by mail
, are acknowledged by all to be exceedingly liberal. Many new subscribers have accordingly been obtained who could not afford to pay the former price of the work. It has been suggested, however, that the number might be still farther increased and thus the usefulness of the work promoted, by the following proposition.
The proprietor accordingly proposes, and hereby agrees, that, to any and every subscriber to the Repository, he will allow one Dollar for each new subscriber he will procure (and forward pay for the same according to the printed terms on the cover,) during the current year! Are there not a thousand present subscribers who will forward each an additional name? Will not many of the number exert themselves to procure each, at least, three, or four, or five new names, and thus save to themselves or their friends the price of their own subscriptions ?
Communications (postage paid) will be promptly attended to, and the Nos. will be addressed to new subscribers as they shall be desired.
As this proposition is made principally to gentlemen who already possess the work, and know its value, nothing need be added here in commendation of its character and worth. Many families and intelligent gentlemen of other professions and callings, as well as Clergymen, have found themselves amply rewarded by the possession of a miscellany of so rich and various instruction. Subscribers are respectfully and earnestly requested to co-operate in commending the work to all who ought to possess it.
W. R. P. P. S. After the present No. the 12mo edition will be printed on better paper.
