The Historical Magazine, and Notes and Queries Concerning the Antiquities, History and Biography of America, 1858, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Historical Magazine, and Notes and Queries Concerning the Antiquities, History and Biography of America, 1858, Vol. 2 A few words may be expected from the Editor of this Magazine, by way of preface to the second volume, which the present number will complete. The removal of the seat of publication from Boston to New York, and the consequent change of editor, are the principal events affecting the work during the past year. The retirement of Mr. J. W. Dean, by whom the editorial duties had been performed in the most satisfactory manner, was very much regretted by all; but the Magazine has not ceased to enjoy the benefit of his good taste and extensive knowledge through the medium of occasional contributions to its pages. His successor, having yielded to the solicitation of the respected publisher to take the vacant place, could not hope to fill it so satisfactorily, without equal experience or fitness, and could only promise to do his best, with no other reward than the gratification of an old taste. At the same time, however, he has been inﬂuenced by a sincere desire to do every thing in his power to sustain an enterprise of so great interest to historical students and the public.
