Attachment Type:

THE LADY'S FRIEND FOR JUNE.-The Steel Plate for this number is the beautiful, saintly face of Isabella, one of Shakspeare's characters. The Colored Fashion Plate gives a rich and tasteful bridal dress and others of the latest style; and a number of well-executed wood-cuts illustrate the most picturesque varieties of the present mode. For music, we find, appropriately for June, "Roses Fair as Jenny's Cheek." The literary department looks attractive: "Dimey's Company," by Mary L. Bolles; the continuation of Mrs. Wood's "Roland York," which is growing exceedingly interesting; "The Jews in Rome," by Julia Ward Howe; Miss Prescott's fascinating novelette, "Between Two;" and an exquisite poem by Florence Perey, furnish choice entertainment in the wpy of light reading. The ladies will find among the illustrations two patterns of Bathing Dresses. Published by Deacon & Peterson, 319 Walnut St., Philadelphia, at $2,50 a year (which also includes a large steel engraving). Four copies, $6. Five copies (and one gratis), $8. "The Lady's Friend" and "The Saturday Evening Post" (and one engraving), 84,00. Specimen numbers sent for ten cents.
