Tue Periodical Work entitled The INTELLECTUAL REPOSITORY FOR THE New Cuurch, has now been established for twelve
years, and has obtained as much support, as, in the yet infant state of the Church whose cause it is designed to promote, could reasonably be expected. The usefulness of such a publication is too generally acknowledged to require pointing out : and were it not that the Conductors feel averse from imitating the method usually adopted, of quoting, in favour of a work which it is wished to recommend, every testimony which can be adduced, they could offer such as would evince, not only that the Intellectual Repository is held in much esteem among the Members of the New Church, but that it is allowed, by competent judges, to occupy a very respectable station among the Periodical Publications of the day:
The Work having thus „far succeeded, and answered the objects of use for which it was commenced, the desire of the Conductors is increased, to render it productive of still farther use, and to make it still more worthy of general patronage. One proposal, indeed, #hich has been made to them with this view, they have not adopted; because, beside other reasons, it would render the duty of conduct ing such a publication heavier than they could undertake to discharge. It has been suggested, that the usefulness of the Work would be increased, by publishing it in Monthly instead of Quarterly Numbers, at a low price, That a Monthly Publication at a low price would possess many advantages, is certain ; and the Conductors of the Intellectual Repository would rejoice to see such & Work established and well supported. But a Publication of a more respectable, and still not expensive form, also has ad vantages which it might not be prudent to forego. And the Intellectual Repository having obtained an establishment founded on the approbation of the Friendsof the New Church, and the respect of others, under its present mode of publication, it is thought best that this should be continued.
But a real improvement would certainly be effected, could the Intellectual Repository be rendesed q cheaper Work; and the sale having latterly increased, and there being no wish to obtain from it any pecuniary, emolument, this may down the price, or
. The mode of doing it may be, either by reducing the price, or increasing the quantity of paper and print: but a Quarterly Publication at a lower price than that for which the Intellectual Repository has hitherto been sold, would appear insignificant; wherefore the latter alteration will be adopted. Originally each Number consisted of seven, half sheets, or 56 pages with the third toleme this quantity was increased to eight half sheets or 64 pages; latterly, nine half sheets have been more frequently given than eight: but in future it is intended that each Number shall contain not less than tøq half-sheets, making 80 pages; the form of the page and type to be the same as before, except that the partial use of the smaller type will be discontinued. It will be necessary also to use # less expensive though good paper.
As the alterations will be altogether considerable, and as it will not much longer be possible to complete sets of the work from the commencement (there being but a few copies of some of the pumbers remaining on hand); it is intended, in a matiner, to .com, menee anew; wherefore
On the First of January, 1821, will be Published,
POR THE NEW CHURCH,

The Conductors beg to return their grateful thanks to the valua, ble Correspondents to whom so much of he estimation in which the work has hitherto been held is due, and to solicit their sup. port for the New Series. The assistance of other intelligent friends is also earnestly requested. As the quantity of pages will be increased, greater exertions will be required to fill them with acceptable matter.
And as it is hoped that the Work will now become more then ever useful 4s a medium of connecting the members of the church with each other, of contributing to their improvement and gratification, of assisting to introduce others to the knowledge of our heavenly doctrines, and of conducing in various ways to the increase of the Lord's true church, the New Jerusalem ; it is respect, fully offered to the patronage of all who have the sacred cause of that church at heart,
Persons disposed to become Subscribers to the work are requested to signify it to either of the Publishers in London, or to the usual channels through whịch Church New Publications are cir. culated in the country. The work may also be had by giving orders for it to any bookseller, eịther in town or country.
