The Editor-thanks very warmly those Ladies and Gentlemen who hav contributed various useful matters to his pages. He hopes that every one having a tried and approved Receipt will forward it for the general good of our “Family," always stating that it has been tested, and giving the particulars as simply and concisely as possible.

And we hope that, especially our Lady friends, will secure for the present volume an introduction to their circle of acquaintances.

With the very best thanks for past approbation and aid, and with good resolutions for the future, the Editor again presents his most friendly greetings to his numerous Family:
