TO OUR READERS. Only two weeks have elapsed since ive issued the first number of our unpretending publica- tion, and we cannot refrain from offering to our numerous friends, thus early, the assurance of our sincere feeling of esteeln and respect, for the countenance with which we have already been favored, as well as for the promises of future support we have received: support, in truth, which is essential, even, to our very exist- ence for, as we stated in our first address, and again repeat,-without such support "the efforts of the Projector cannot be expected to succeed." We must, however, intreat our very .hind friends, not to lose sight of this fact; that we did not enter upon the present task, as Competitors with any other Newspaper, but, as we distinctly stated, for the purpose of offering a medium for diffusing information as to our Town and Neighbourhood, which might be bene- ficial to the place; no other public Vehicle for information beingpitblished in the County, and the nearest being distant 50 miles, while but few are within the circuit of 100 miles ;-and wefeel convinced they will not estimate the intrinsic value of the Mirror, "in comparison with other Newspapers which may be obtained of double or treble the size, for only a penny or two more." In especially thanking our advertising friends for their favors, which have fully equalled our most sanguine expectations, we beg to remind them that, independently of the circulation of the Mirror in the immediate Neighbourhood, it is supplied without any charge, to the libraries and public places in BATH, CLIFTON, CLEVEDON, CHELTENHAM, LEAMINGTON, GLOUCESTER, SOUTHAMPTON, LYMINGTON, WORCESTER, SHREWSBURY, HEREFORD, and places through- out the principality generally. It is also filed in LONDON, at PEEL'S COFFEE-HOUSE; at MESSRS. NEWTON, AND CO'S. 5, WARWICK SQUARE, NEWGATE STREET; AND AT MR. REYNELL'S, GAZETTE ADVERTISEMENT OF- FICE, 42, CHANCERY LANE by whom orders and advertisements will be received, as also by MR. H. HUGHES, BOOKSELLER, ST. MARTIN'S LE GRAND; AND MR.
