The Friendly Visitor

Started in Kirkby Lonsdale by the Rev. William Carus Wilson in 1819/20. It seems to have run under various guises and was, for a period (1854-62) retitled CHRISTIAN SERVICE. Its final series, as FRIENDLY VISITOR began in 1913. It is described in the back of THE FAMILY FRIEND as "religious reading for the million" and containing "attractive papers on all phases of religious life and work, as well as bright healthy fiction by favourite writers".
