these objects, the work will be enlarged, without any increase of expense to its
patrons, but a more extended circulation will be necessary. An appeal; therefore,
is respectfully and urgently made to the litrary public, and to the hole commu-
nity, to aid us in the accomplishment of objects which have only for their aim the
development of the literary resources of the country, and, cone uently its general
welfare. Thiis work has hitherto been, and will hereafter continue to be, publis h-
ed under the auspices of the Literarq and Philosophical Society of South Carolina,
whose members have afforded it important aid by their patronage and literary con-
tributions. In respect to its past course and its present claims to consideration, we
append the following recommendation from gentlemen whose high standing is well
known, throughout the gou , and is calculated to secure respect to an expression
of their opinions:--
The subscribers feel-a deep interest in the success of the SOUTHERN LITERARY
JOURNAL, as work calculated to advance the literary character of the Southern
country, and as a proper vehicle for the e excise and display of its talent. They
have earned with great pleasure that its pat onage has been steadily increasing, and
that with a moderate effort on the part of its friends, it must certainly become
pert nett and prosperous. This effort should not be withheld, and with a con-
summation so desirable in view, they beg to recommend it still more to the favor-
able consideration of the Souther community. Devoted to our various yet pecu-
liar interests, it is an agent which may be made valuable in the defence of our in.
stitutions, not less than the organ of our thoughts, studies and recreations. They
freely tender their approval, therefore, to its past course, and earnestly urge, and
warmly encourage its editor to still greater exertions, which must be pleasing to
his patron, and will secure their continued countenance.
