The Publisher of THE FARMERS MAGAZINE (Price 1s. 9d.) is “extremely sorry that he has been necessarily obliged to postpone the publication” of the magazine from 6th January to 20th January. The circumstances causing the delay were “out of his power to prevent”, and he promises to endeavour to “study to merit a continuance of [the Public’s] favours” to thank them for their understanding and their “liberal and respectable support” in this matter.
