TO THE READERS AND CORRESPONDENTS OF THE
WE are sorry to hear, that our old Friend, Acaftus, is about to take his leave of us on the subject of Hunting ; however, it affords us no trifling Degree of Satisfaction to find it is not his intention to forsake us altogether; his Promise of future Communications is gladly received, to which our usual Attention shall not at any time be found wanting.
Amicus's Lines shall have a Place in our Next.
Mother Punch-bowl came too late for insertion this Month ; her Ladyship, however, may expect a Place in our Next. As also the Jefuitical Exculpation.
Venator, Veritas, An Antiquarian Sportsman, &c. &c. will find their Requests attended to in our present Number.
We are happy in being able again to resume the Life of Mr. Tattersall in this Number, which (we flatter ourselves), with that Part already given, and what may be expected to come, will afford our Readers noinconfiderable degree of Satisfaction and Entertainment.
Capt. Snug has come to hand, but too late for insertion this Month.
The many rich and pleasurable Trifles we have just received from an Old Subscriber, shall have due Attention paid them; his Hint meets our Approbation, which, at a proper season, we shall not hesitate to adopt.
