Excerpt from Old Yorkshire
In issuing the fifth and last volume of Old Yorkshire, the Editor desires to impress on his contributors and subscribers the fact that it is from no lack of support, either in the shape of contributions or subscriptions, that he is compelled to abandon the work. Circumstances over which he had no control have arisen, which will not admit of his devoting that time and attention to the work which alone can ensure for it the maintenance in the future of that high position in the estimation of its readers which in the past it so happily attained.
In bidding "good-bye" to the many literary friends whose contributions have graced its pages, the Editor would again express his great indebtedness, as well as his sincere thanks, for the unvarying kindness with which they have assisted him in his labours; and to those gentlemen who have, during the progress of the work, volunteered communications, which, for various reasons (principally want of space), have been declined, he begs to acknowledge his obligations, and to express his sincere regret that it was not in his power to gratify their wishes. More especially in connection with the present volume has the unpleasant task of writing "declined with thanks," in regard to offered contributions, fallen to his lot, and he has never so written without a pang of regret.
