LONDON: BRADBURY, EVANS, AND CO., PRINTERS, WHITEFRIARS.

CONTENTS.

Owing to a mistake as to the time when Victor Hugo's novel would be published, together with the desire of the Publishers to

make its issue coincident with that of the new Volume of Once a Week for 1869, the paging of the first and second Numbers
of the present year was allowed to run on in continuation of the previous Volume. The error has been condoned by adding
the Numbers for January 2 and 9 to the previous Volume, and by thus commencing Volume III, with the 3rd No. (55) of 1869.
