We have very little to say by way of preface, except to thank those friends who have during the past year favoured us with their valuable contributions. We have reason to believe that our united labours have been generally approved, from the numerous occasions upon which we have received flattering testimonies to this effect; at the request of the Proprietors we, therefore, feel encouraged to continue in office, and we can assure our readers that our best endeavours will be used both to improve the tone, and increase the efficiency of the Baptist Magazine.
During the latter part of the year our esteemed friend Mr. Spurgeon has felt it right to withdraw from the editorial staff. We have much pleasure in remembering the perfect harmony and cordiality of feeling which have prevailed between us from first to last, and we cannot suffer Mr. Spurgeon to retire without saying that although our association in this work is dissolved, we shall always cherish towards him the warmest sentiments of personal friendship.
Our readers will perceive by the announcement on the covers that we have made arrangements for the ensuing year which will secure for the Magazine the assistance of a large number of the most influential names in our denomination. Earnestly do we entreat from our Subscribers such efforts as will result in the increased sale of this long tried and faithful exponent of our principles, and that not only for the truth's sake, but also in the interest of those whose necessities are ministered to by its profits.
W. G. LEWIS, JUN. December, 1862
