No. 1.

TO OUR YOUNG READERS. This number of the Youth's Dayspring is the first of a series with which we propose to furnish our young readers from month to month. You are all fond of reading stories; and we are going to take a great deal of pains to tell you stories that will please and instruct you, and do you good; and especially lead you to try to do good to others. And we wish to have you take particular notice of one thing in regard to our stories, which cannot be said of all the stories that children read, namely, that they are all true. We shall not manufacture any stories for you, out of our own imagination, neither shall we copy any from other. papers, or books, that do not come well attested for truth. For instance, the story about the “gold dollar” in this number is all true, and so is the story of Mariam, the little Armenian girl, and so of the others.

Each number will have one or more wood engravings, to enable you to understand better the condition of the people who are described in these pages; and thus by our stories and our pictures, we shall endeavor to carry you around through the world, as it were, and show you the missionaries laboring in the different countries, and the kinds of people for whom they labor, and the appearance, manners, and customs of the countries in which they are living.
