| 111 E. 50TH STREX
IN closing another volume of the Magazine, the past and the future both suggest themselves for special consideration. Five years have now rolled by since this work was undertaken, and when we look back upon the numerous difficulties which we had to contend with in the performance of the duty it imposed, we are scarcely able to account for its successful continuance to the present time. Of one thing, however, we are certain, that our periodical would long since have been expunged from the catalogue of Catholic publications in this country, had we not received the constant co-operation of able contributors among the clergy and laity. For this valued aid we beg leave to return our warmest acknowledgments, and to express the hope that our future labors will be sustained by the same excellent auxiliaries. To the Catholic public in general we would likewise tender the tribute of our gratitude, for we are well aware that, without the encouragement and patronage of the community to whose instruction and to the honor of whose religion our toils have been devoted, the Magazine would have been an utter failure. We are thankful, in a special manner, to the Rev. clergy and the conductors of the press, whose favorable notice and friendly efforts have contributed to enlarge the circulation of the work. No exertion shall be omitted on our part to merit a continuance of this good feeling. We have still the same momentous objects to stimulate us in the diligent execution of our task; or rather, these objects are from year to year acquiring additional importance, from the increasing population of the country and the more systematic energies which the enemies of Catholicity are wielding against it. For this reason we shall pass to another year of editorial labor, with renewed zeal for the good cause, and we trust that a corresponding disposition will be manifested by those who should be equally interested in it with ourselves.
We earnestly recommend to the clergy and laity, the United States CATAOLIC MAGAZINE, a Catholic periodical to be published monthly in Baltimore. It is calculated to promote the honor of our holy religion, and will, we trust, have a place in every Catholic library.
Í SAMUEL, Archbishop of Baltimore. BALTIMORE,Circumcision of our Lord, 1842.
I hereby establish the U. S. Catholic Magazine my official organ of public communication with the clergy and laity of the archdiocess of Baltimore. Should it become necessary to address them on any subject before the regular period for the publication of the Magazine, an extra sheet will be issued, corresponding in dimensions and style with those of the periodical.
