Description
 
An 8 1/2" paper doll attired in corset and petticoats with printe d message on reverse "Please remember that a new dress for this doll will be given to you each month.  It will be presented to you by the dealer as a gift from DEMOREST'S FAMILY MAGAZINE.  All the favor they request of you in return is that you will ask your mother, or the grown people of your family, to read the "Contents" of the Magazine that will be printed on the back of the dress each month.  Our object is to interest them in the Magazine; so, after calling for a new dress each month, be sure to perform this little duty, and then you will feel at liberty to call for another dress the following month."   Compliments of Ames and Bates Newsdealer & Stationers, Boston. Accompanied by two dresses cut from Demorest's promotions from 1819.  Guess the child didn't appreciate being used as an advertising pawn after a couple of months....
