From the Richmond Dispatch, 3/31/1863, p. 2, c. 3
NOTICE – We shall have the first part of Victor Hugo’s great Romance ready by the 20th proximo. Owing to the unforeseen rise in the price of paper, we are compelled to charge $1.50 for this novel instead of $1 as first announced. To those who have already remitted the advertised price, the book will be sent as issued, without further advance.
[remainder of titles were not transcribed – MDG]
The above, when ready, will be for sale at all booksellers in the Confederate states, and by the publishers.
