|A popular children’s miscellaneous magazine, illustrated with woodcuts, edited by Grave Greenwood (Sarah J. Lippincott). It vowed ‘not to discuss profound religious doctrines or political problems with our young readers,’ but ‘to inculcate a high religious morality’ and ‘present in fair and attractive forms, the divine truths contained in that blessed epitome of Faith, Freedom, Love, Temperance, and Peace – Christ’s Sermon on the Mount.’|
