National Geographic : 1908 Dec
To Our Readers WE ask every reader of this Magazine to recommend it to his or her friends. During the year 1909 the publication will be more entertaining, more instructive, more indispensable than ever. In its educational value we believe the Magazine is un equalled by any other periodical. It ought to be taken by every public and every school library in the United States and Canada. The following quotations are from letters by readers of the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE : "The MAGAZINE seems, if possible, to grow more valuable and more beautiful with every number." "There is always a happy time in my study when the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE arrives. Although I take a large number of periodicals, there is not one which I enjoy more thoroughly and which reveals to me more that it is important for a thinking American citizen to know."-From Andrew D. White, formerly Ambassadorto Germany, Minister to Russia, ex-President of Cornell University, etc "The NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE is just long enough and just short enough for its purpose. If you meet with a friend of mine say that I always read it through, which is more than I can say of most magazines. Then it is cheap beyond example." -From Edward Everett Hale, authorof "The Man Without a Country." National Geographic Magazine, Washington, D. C.
