TO THE FRIENDS OF ABOLITION
Only two numbers are wanting to complete the first volume of the Liberator. The paper has succeeded beyond our reasonable expectations. It was commenced without any subscribers, resting its permanency alone upon its merits, and has gradually but constantly increased its subscriptions up to the present time. We now propose to enlarge it to a royal size on the commencement of the new year, without enhancing our terms. Subscribers, therefore, will receive a greater quantity of reading, by one third, than they have done heretofore, for the same money.
The proposed enlargement of our sheet will nearly double our expenses for the ensuing year. We call upon the genuine friends of abolition to sustain us, in the present warfare, by their voluntary subscriptions…………………….
