Excerpt from The American Journal of Education, 1867, Vol. 17 After much of the copy of Number One was in type, a conference was held with the Rev. Absalom Peters, D. D., who contemplated the publication of a periodical under the title of the American College Ro view, and Educational Magazine or Journal. This conference led to the combination of the two periodicals, and a joint editorship of the Amer ican Journal of Education and College Review. The first number was published in type, style and matter as prepared by the undersigned. With the adoption of the Prospectus already prepared by Dr. Peters for his magazine, modified, so as to merge the prominent feature of the College Review in the more comprehensive title of the American Jour nal of Education. In the preparation of the second number, it became evident that two could not walk, or work together, unless they be agreed, and by mutual arrangement, and for mutual convenience, it was determined after the issue of that number, to discontinue the joint publication, leav ing each party the privilege of publishing an Educational Magazine for which he was entitled to use the first and second number of the Amer ican Journal of Education and College Review, as number one and two of his work. In the spirit and letter of this arrangement, as understood by him, the undersigned resumed the title and plan of his own Journal, and has completed the first volume by the publication of a number for March and for May, with this variation only, that he has given his subscribers more than he originally promised, and in the further prosecution of his work, shall include in the Journal much that he intended for chapters in some of the treatises which were to compose the Library of Education.
