plan from intimations which they have generously favoured us with.

The request of a Pattern for an Apron, by a lady who shines in our collection, we have complied with, not valuing our expence, providing we can express our gratitude.

The author of Shakespeare, or remarks on Shakespeare's characters, has done us a singular honour in presenting us with Number I. and hope he will not zake it amiss that we have published an extract from it for the entertainment of our fair correspondents.

The rich Pattern for a laced Apron to be wrought on Car-gutt, 13. now in the hands of our engraver, and is designed for the Magazine for January next.As the drawing is by one of the most ingenious artists in London, we doubt not but the lady who requested it, as well as our fair patronefles in general, will be satisfied with it on account of its richness and elegance.

We waited for the continuation of Fanny Scudamori, &c. till we had scarcely time for printing the favours received from our other female friends.
