TO THE READER.
THE TIME HAS NOW COME for us to present our good friends, the Public, with our collected Thoughts of the last Six Months. If they experience only one-half the pleasure in reading, that we have felt whilst writing,- our object will have been fully attained. So much, as regards ourselves.
We need add nothing further,-excepting indeed a hearty acknowledgment of the kind offices rendered us by our literary friends and allies in the paths of Science. We owe them a heavy debt of gratitude for favors received, and for their having cheered us on by the way. Many have been our besetting difficulties; but by their aid, we have survived
Let us solicit a continuance of the same friendly offices ; then shall we again appear in December—and with a still more interesting Volume, perhaps, than the present.
New ROAD, HAMMERSMITH,
