LITTELL'S LIVING AGE.
Extracts of letters from Judgt Mory, Chancellor
Kent, and l'rctidtut Adam:
Cambridge, April 34, 1?4L
I have rend the irospectus with great plea
sure, and entirely approve tbe yinn. If it
can only obtain the public pntrotiage long
enough, and Inrgo enough, ami securely
enough lo attain its true ends, it w ill contri
bute in nu eminent degree to give a healthy
lone not only to our liierattue, hut to public
opinion. It will enable u to possess in
uiudcruto compass a select library of Ihe best
productions ol the age. It will do more) it
will redeem our periodical literature from
the reproach of being devoted to light ami
superficial reading, to transitory spcei Inti Oil,
to sickly ami ephemeral semiim htnlitti s, and
false uml extravagant rkelchi a ol'lile tud
character. JOSLFll S'lOItY.
