Topic: The Proprietors of the Athenaeum, in presenting a New Series to their Subscribers, Advertisers and the Public, deem it proper to state...the plan...to be adopted for the future. [The Athenaeum makes a statement to its readers. It has altered its day of publication to a Saturday. It will be in smaller type to get more in. There will be a greater range of contributors, including some "eminent authors" and ex-writers for the London Weekly Review. It will concentrate on quality reviewing and article-writing, not journalistic speed. It promises "an increased attention to Foreign Literature, to the Drama, to Works of Embellishment, and to the progress of the Arts and Sciences in Foreign Countries, no less than at home". And now containing "commercial intelligence", it is expected to "find its way to the Study, the Breakfast-table, and the Counting-house, of the intelligent throughout the Kingdom, as well as in the British possessions abroad"]
