Full text: Secession (Number one) (1)

The Director pledges his energies for at least two 
years to the continuance of Secession. Beyond a two 
year span, observation shows, the vitality of most re 
views is lowered and their contribution, accomplished, 
becomes repetitious and unnecessary. Secession will 
take care to avoid moribundity. 
Secession is taking advantage of low printing costs 
in the Central Powers. This means that, whereas most 
magazines of the arts in America must appeal for thou 
sands of dollars in order to attain to any size or 
distribution, Secession can equal them by the expen 
diture of a few hundreds. 
This fact affords the sophisticated, regardless of 
the size of the bank accounts in their names, an unu 
sual opportunity to resume the honored role of literary 
patron — at present neglected by a leisure class with 
out the knowledge of enjoying their leisure. 
By the gift of only five dollars (more, if you like) 
towards the expenses of each of six successive numbers, 
you may become a Patron of Secession. Patronage 
gifts are payable upon notice from the Treasurer a 
short time in advance of the publication of each num 
ber. Patrons receive two subscriptions, invitations to 
Secession soirées, and whatever other special privileges 
we can give them. A sufficient amount of patronage 
will produce a larger, more handsome Secession, print 
ed ten times a year. It will enable us to make moder 
ate payment for manuscripts. 
Enthusiasts are invited to address Peter K. Hurwitz, 
Treasurer, 1361 — 46 Street, Brooklyn, New York.
