APPEAL FOR SUFFERING GENIUS,
TA\e Trluwv'pVi ot TywAAy.
By Du/iiel Bryan. Price 50 Cents.
It has already been announced that the profits of'this
work—if any should be realized—are to be applied to
the relief of the Bosto.v Bard, who is now wholly de
pendent upon the benevolence of his country men toi
the humblest means of sustenance.
If not through sympathy and respect for hapless Ge
nius—or from regard to the honor of your country;—
O, do, for the sake of Charity—do, through pity for
the sufferings of a consumptive, dying, brother-man,
and of his aged, widow ed, heart-broken, mother, con
tribute your mite to shelter them from the chilling
blasts of winter, and the horrors of starvation!
