LITTELL'S



LIVING AGE.




E Pluribus Unum.

"These publications of the day should from time to time be winnowed, the wheat carefully preserved, and
the chaff thrown away."


"Made up of every creature's best."


"Various, that the mind
Of desultory man, studious of change,
And pleased with novelty, may be indulged."
