Yes—and the Wretch said it was time that American Ladies of Taste made their own
Fashions; and would you believe it, PAPA sided with him, and MAMMA and I became

NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW.
NO. CCII.—For January, 1864.
Edited by Professor JAMES RUSSELL
LOWELL and CHAS. ELIOT NORTON, Esq.
CONTENTS: ART. I. Life of William
H. Prescott; II. The Bible and Slavery; III. The Ambulance System; IV. The
Bibliotheca Sacra; V. Immorality in Politics; VI. The Early Life of Governor
Winthrop; VII. The Sanitary Commission; VIII. Renan's Life of Jesus; IX. The
President's Policy; X. Critical Notices.
Article IX., by Professor James
Russell Lowell, on THE PRESIDENT'S POLICY, is thus spoken of by the New York
"The NORTH AMERICAN, after this,
should be a favorite at the White House. Mr. Lincoln will find, in some of the
views which this article takes of his public course, an explanation of his
official acts quite as satisfactory, probably, as any which his own dexterity of
statement, and that is not small, could furnish."
THE NOREH AMERICAN REVIEW is
published quarterly, on the first days of January, April, July, and October, in
numbers of about three hundred pages each, containing matter equal to an
ordinary octavo volume.
TERMS. Five Dollars a year, or
one dollar and twenty-five cents a number.

Agents should be careful in
directing their orders for our Original and "only Genuine" Extra Large Size
Stationery Prize Packages, which have become so popular through the fine quality
and value of their contents. As we have several imitators, who copy our Styles,
Advertisements, Premiums, &c., we are the only manufacturers of the "Celebrated

Frank Leslie's Illustrated
Newspaper, of Aug. 22, says: "Messrs. NORTON & CO. have combined two very
desirable things in a watch—cheapness and reliability. When it is known that for
$7 a person can have an excellent timekeeper, there will be greater punctuality
in all the affairs of life."
