PUBLISHED FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE ASYLUM OF THE GOOD

SHEPHERD, HAMMERSMITH,
BY J. H. KEATS, 142, SLOANE STREET;
C. DOLMAN; T. JONES ; J. BROWN (LATE KEATING AND BROWN);

AND P. AND M. ANDREWS.

NOTICE.

The idea of publishing this little work was only entertained for the first time last October, and the greater number of the articles have been prepared since that period. This will account for its appearing in so limited a form, having neither the variety in matter nor the embellishments usual in such works. Should, however, this first attempt to establish a Catholic Annual meet with encouragement, it is proposed to increase the next number considerably in size, and to render it in every respect an attrac

tive and acceptable “New Year's Gift.” - The present number necessarily contains rather minute details concerning the charitable institution for the benefit of which THE CATHOLIC KEEPSAKE is published. This was thought advisable, in order that persons at a distance, probably hitherto unacquainted even with its existence, might be led to take an interest in its advancement, and be induced to contribute towards its support, thereby increasing its power of doing good, and extending the sphere of its usefulness.

Literary contributions for the next volume are requested to be sent to the Editor of The Catholic KEEPSAKE, care of the Rev. J. ROBSON, Cadogan-terrace, Chelsea.
