"With the next issue Girls of Today adopts the expressive and beautiful name of The New York Mirror, a change impelled by the fact that, contrary to our expectations, the first adopted title was, in a degree, narrowing the weekly down to a strictly class journal which it is not intended it shall be. Being a weekly in which Fact, Fancy and Fiction are delightfully blended, it appeals to all classes, interests and readers."Girls alone, apparently, could not be depended upon to support the journal. The new name may cause some confusion unless the year of issue is noted, for there was another weekly New York Mirror published in New York in 1823 to 1842 and 1844 to 1846.
"This number is the last issue of the New York Mirror. The success of the paper, though by no means discouraging, is not ample enough to warrant its continuance an announcement which, we are sure, all its readers will receive with regret. The list is turned over to the New York Saturday Journal one of the most popular and admirable of all the weeklies which will be supplied to the end of each subscription."There was an error in numbering some of the copies of May 6, 1876. They are marked No. 24, instead of No. 23, but the date is correct.
