Excerpt from Kidd's Own Journal, 1853, Vol. 3: For Inter-Communications on Natural History, Popular Science, and Things in General
The year which has just closed upon us, has been one Of the most eventful within our recollection. It will be for the historian of the year, to collect the extraordinary circum stances that have occurred, both at home and abroad, within the past twelve months; and to place them in array before us. We who know them, and have watched them narrowly in their progress, can meantime ruminate on the significance of their meaning, and turn them to a profitable account. It is a favor ite axiom of ours, that nothing happens by chance; and that everything that transpires is right.
