In publishing a Title-page to “ THE FLY” for the year 1839, it will not be deemed out of place to offer the thanks of the Proprietors and Conductors to their patrons for the very liberal support which has repaid their labors during that period.

“THE Fly” now ranks as the first and best Illustrated Periodical

of the time ; and although its columns have been kept free from those silly puffs which mark the progress of many works, the Public amply testify that its intrinsic merits are such as well deserve the vast patronage

it is honored with.

The Editor seizes this opportunity to tender his thanks to his numerous Correspondents, whose talented productions have done so much towards establishing the character of “The Fly."

The great improvements made in “ The Fly's Picture Galleryduring the past year will be carried out to the fullest extent in our succeeding numbers and no opportunity will be lost of improving the work in every department.
