Notes to Correspondents

R's account of the honey dew came too late for this month - it shall appear in our next.

The lines on Frailty, signed A.T. are received, and under consideration.

J.B.'s piece, relating the case of an unfortunate adventurer in a lottery, is received - It was too lengthy for insertion this month, were there no other reason for postponing its publication - Its incorrections, however, are too numerous to pass unobserved by the reader, and too easily amended, perhaps by the author, not to indicate the wish that his own pruning-knife and burnisher would once more be resumed for its embellishment. We suppose it the composition of an unexperienced writer, who, by application, and the critical instructions of some friend, may procure agreeable acccomplishments of the literary kind.
