WE are much obliged to W.M. T. for his communications; we have no doubt that the long Poem he speaks of may be inserted, perhaps at once, at any rate at twice, and shall be very happy to receive it,
We hope S. Y. will not overlook the notice, annexed to one of his pieces in the poetical department.
Belinda's Essay is intended for our next,
R. P's. pieces were received, but require revision.
We entertain a very favourable opinion of C. D.'s specimen, and hope we shall hear again from him.
