The Two Papers Combined

16 November 1850 - 17 November 1850

Within a few days publishing plans changed. At the conference in Paris on Sabbath and Sunday, November 16 and 17, 1850, it was decided to combine Present Truth and the Advent Review. The new periodical would be called The Second Advent Review and Sabbath Herald.

The page size was 9 1/2" x 13" (24 centimeters x 33 centimeters), as compared to the 7 3/4" x 10" (20 centimeters x 25 centimeters) for Present Truth and the Advent Review. The masthead carried four names as the Publishing Committee (Joseph Bates, S. W. Rhodes, J. N. Andrews, and James White), and the subscription terms were "gratis, except the reader desires to aid in its publication."

If any are not able to send means, we beseech them not to let this stop them from writing. We greatly desire to hear from such and will cheerfully pay the postage on their letters (RH, November 1850).
