TOWN AND COUNTRY.

VOL. II.

BOSTON:

PUBLISHED BY GEORGE ROBERTS,

No. 5 STATE STREET.

1842.

The success and increasing popularity of our QUARTO Notion appears to us to obviate the necessity of continuing the issue of our Semi-Monthly Magazine. The number of subscribers entitled to receive it after this date is limited, and to them we shall substitute copies of the Quarto Notion, which will be giving them a greater amount of reading matter than that contai i

The Quarto Notion forms a beautiful volume at the expiration of the year, and we think will prove a handsome substitute for the present publication. This, therefore, is the last number of the Magazine which will be published.

GEORGE ROBERTS,

Publisher and Proprietor. BOSTON, JANUARY 1, 1841.

N. B.-Thirteen numbers only of Quarto Notion have as yet been published, and back copies from its commencement can be furnished to new subscribers.
