In all the Union, south of Washington, there are
but two Literary periodicals ! Northward of that

To the patrons of the Sou thern Literary Messenger.
The startling cost at which this work has been
established, and is sustained, arid the backwa:«l
ness of many subscribers in fulfilling their pari of
our mutual compact, call indispensably for an ap
peal, not to their liberality—but to their justice.
If punctual payments are ever necessary, they ate
pre-eminently so in the case of such a publica
tion. —purely literary—almost wholly original—
and destitute of the Vital aid which newspapers
derive from advertisements.
My all is at stake, in ibis enterprise —lt i 9 •*
venture, stimulated indeed by some hope of e
molument; but founded largely, also upon the
well warranted expectation of rallying Southern
talents and Southern public spirit, around the
drooping and well nigh prostrate banner of South
ern Literature. Since it has now acquired claim*
upon Southern justice — can it be, that thes are
urged in vain ?
Subscribers then, who are in arrears— and Id
them remember, that payment is due in advance,
will, I trust, without delay, transmit the mount*
they owe to ntc, at Richmond, by mail, at my
risk and cost; taking proper evidence of the fi> c
and date of mailing; and retaining a memorau
dunt of each note sent.
