Excerpt from Sharpe's London Journal of Entertainment and Instruction for General Reading, 1849, Vol. 9: With Elegant Steel Engravings
ON submitting to the Subscribers the ninth volume of a Magazine over which he was suddenly and unexpectedly called upon to preside, and which, under the able management of his talented predecessor, had attained to a firm standing in our periodical literature, the present Editor might well feel some degree of uneasiness, lest what had been so auspiciously begun, should, under a different management, lose somewhat of its hold upon the goodwill of its supporters. If, however, the circulation of the Magazine is at all to be taken as a test, such apprehensions are happily unfounded. Indeed, it will be evident that no organic changes have been made in the conduct of sharpe at all calculated to give alarm as to the stability of those general principles upon which it was originally founded, and by the advocacy of which alone it can continue to stand firm.
