from Correspondents will be received.
To our CORRESPONDENTS.
E are not a little obliged to the author of the Letters from Mrs. Scuda-,
mire to Lady Saville, for the submiffion and readiness of recomposing the letter which had miscarried, and without which the thread of the narrative must have been broken, and the continuation unintelligible.
We are likewise obliged to the translator of Emilia for resuming her pen, and favouring us with a continuation of a work fraught with so many useful precepts to the sex.
Will Miss Clara R forgive us if we should whisper to her that we are importuned for the continuation of her letters, and that the suspence of our readers seems to have become bois rous ? Among
other pieces in profe, we have received a Letter from Fanny Lovel 10 Sophia. Beau!y, an Ejay, by 9. H- Tre Moral Advijer, No. 11.

Pagg 694, line 35, read jill. The same page, line 26, after murmurs, should have been a period, and an ellitfis after gonder. Page 695, read Hejperus. Same page, line 27, read worlds.

Same page, line 33, should have been a period instead of a comma after around me. With respect to the ellipjes mentioned by this writer, he may see that they are seldom used by printers at present, and that a comma answers their purpose as well.
