The National Era
Unsigned Article
Washington, D.C.: 19 November 1857

  A subscriber says that the ladies used to look after the interests of the Era when it was publishing Uncle Tom's Cabin, and he hopes that we may be able to gratify them again with something of the sort. We should be delighted to do so, but an Uncle Tom's Cabin is built only about once in a century. We hope our fair friends, however, will not neglect us. Let them live in hope. The moment we can secure anything pre-eminently good, they shall have the benefit of it.
