A monthly Sunday School magazine published by Oliver Sheple. Carolyn Gilman, editor of the Rose Bud (1832-1839), was surprised to find that another periodical shared that name: “Having been often complimented on the pretty and novel name of our newspaper, we were startled, and must confess, somewhat chagrined, when a friend, last week, brought us a monthly publication from Lowell, (Mass.) called ‘The Rose Bud,’ with a vignette somewhat resembling our own, which we find has been in existence since last March. It is got up with great neatness, and seems happily designed for Sunday Schools.” [Rose Bud; p. 30] Also, V. 1 no 6 in original blue wrappers. As a result, Gilman changed the name of her periodical to Southern Rose Bud. One issue on OCLC. A unique survival. See:
