As W. Mudford's Tale is intended to reach beyond situs Numbers, we must of course reject it. His petulant letter, in which he announces to us the superior merit of his own performances, only served to excite a smile of contempt. W. Templeton's haste also to chastise this consequential gentleman, has produced an angry note, because his Animadversions^ which caffle too late for insertion, did not appear last month. We now leave these too gentlemen to settle this important dispute between themselves, and here drop the subject.

The Triumph of Truth, a Tale, shall have a place in the next Number; but we recommend conciseness and brevity. We should wish to know something about Muly before we take any extracts from the letters; at present the passages have an appearance of incoherency. The piece, signed Petrarch, shall receive due attention. The IVar Hoop, and the Song of Tychicus, shall have admission; but the other effort is too imperfect for insertion. With the Descriptive Sketch we are much pleased; there is a neatness in the sentiment and a force in the language, by which the reader of taste and discernment will be gratisied. The Panegyric on a Goldfinch shall appear in our Miscellany; but we are sorry that the Sketch of the Wolverhampton Theatre came too late for this Month's insertion. We are, however, obliged to Civis for his attention.

We close the Year by observing, that we wish our Correspondents to be more correct and spirited in their Communications. To write less, and with greater accuracy, would be more creditable to themselves and more acceptable to their readers. Could also the juvenile writer lay aside that vanity which too often accompanies his imperfect productions, it would prove a great advantage to him; for our own part we arc free to declare that, in the prosecution of our labours, we have frequent occasion to remark, that modesty and merit are almost inseparably united. To such of our correspondents we pay an unremitting attention, persuaded that their communications will impart a permanent value to our Miscellany.



7*e Letter P. signifies that the Piece, to which it is annexed, it to be
sound in the Poetry; and the Letter R. intimates that it is an Article
in our Review*
