American Biblical Bepository,

SECOND SERIES.
Price Five Dollars per annum, in advance.

PROPOSITION TO SUBSCRIBERS. To obviate all objections on account of the expense of the Repository to distant subscribers, and to place it within the reach of intelligent individuals and families of limited means, in all parts of the country, the proprietors submit the following proposition, viz. :

To each subscriber wishing to receive the work by mail, and who will forward five dollars in advance, postage paid, the numbers will be promptly sent, postage paid by the proprietors. And at whatever time during the year five dollars shall be received from a subscriber, the subsequent numbers for the year shall be sent, postage paid as above.

This offer, if accepted, will save to each subscriber, receiving the work by mail, during the year, at a distance less than 100 miles, one dollar or more, and at a distance of more than 100 miles, nearly two dollars.

So large an allowance cannot long be continued, unless it shall result in a corresponding increase of subscribers. The proposition is made for the current year, however, with the confident expectation that its liberality will be appreciated, that many who might otherwise feel unable to possess the work, will embrace these peculiarly favorable terms, and that thus an amount of patronage will be received which will enable the proprietors to sustain the enormous tax imposed upon the transmission of periodicals, by our existing post-office laws, and to continue to furnish the Repository to its most distant readers, as cheap as to city subscribers.

N. B. Letters concerning the Repository, the names of subscribers, etc. may be addressed to Mr. Josiah ADAMS, General Agent, corner of Fulton and Nassau streets, New York, or to the EDITOR, at the same place.
