TO SUBSCRIBERS AND CORRESPONDENTS.

“Family Pictures,” which may be regarded as another admirable Lesson for Wires,

by “C. H.,” will appear, most probably, next month.

“The Spanish Stage, No. I.,” is under consideration. Its aspect does not please us; but the writer will probably hear from us in three or four days after this notice

shall have met her eye.

Our fair and able champion of “Needle Work,” will very soon see the production

of her pen. IN PRINT"—as, we doubt not, all her NEEDLE work is.

That the favours of “E. M. P.” are most acceptable, we have had the pleasure of

giving many proofs.

We shall endeavour to meet the wishes of Miss Roberts, respecting her friend's

volume, in another and perhaps a more serviceable quarter.

“My Wedding Day” will probably appear at some future period. It possesses the

recommendation of brevity.

The commissions of our friend “J. B.” were all promptly, and, we trust,

effectively executed.

The last received packet of “S. S.”—also that of “A. S.”—has been forwarded to its destination.

“Fairies, No. II.,” have been received.

We are not sanguine in our anticipations respecting the work projected by our

friend at York; but we shall leave no effort unmade. “Fashion” would, we fear, be thought out of date.

Through a private chamel, a packet has been forwarded to “W.C. S.” for his

ILLUSTRATIVE MEMOIR OF THE RIGHT HONOURABE KATHARINE MARY, LADY FORESTER.

The Right Honourable Katharine Mary, Lady Forester, sister of his Grace the Duke of Rutland, is the second daughter of Charles, fourth and late Duke of Rutland, by his Duchess, Mary Isabella, daughter of Charles Noel Somerset, fourth Duke of Beaufort. Her Ladyship was married on the 17th of June, 1800, to Cecil Weld Forester, Esq., now Lord Forester. This nobleman, created Baron Forester, of Willey Park, Shropshire, on the 17th of July, 1821, is the descendant of an ancient and much-respected family. His Lordship is in possession of a grant, made by King Henry VIII. to one of his ancestors—John Forester, of Watling Street, in the county of Salop, Esq.-to wear his hat in the presence of his Majesty. Sir William Forester, of Dothill, Knt., his Lordship's great-grandfather, born in 1665, married Lady Mary Cecil, daughter of James, third Earl of Salisbury, by his Countess, Margaret Manners, fifth daughter of John, eighth Earl of Rutland. Thus there has long been a connection between the families of Manners and Forester. William, the issue of this marriage, married Katharine, the daughter of William Brook, Esq. Brook Forester, his eldest son, married, in No. 40.-Wol. VII.
