ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS.

TH "HE Editors are happy to hear from their old Correspondent Mr. C.

Roope, whose elegant Verses will be given in the next Number. Mr. Abby's very beautiful Poem will also appear in our next.

Clario's Hint will be attended to.

A. G.'s Poem will be returned as directed, the first Opportunity.

G. H. of Edinburgh is informed, that he may himself remedy the Inconvenience of which he complains, by giving a regular Order to his Bookseller.

Matilda's elegant Verses, in Favour of a Singing Bird, are received, and will be inserted in our next.

The Favours of Amintor are likewise come to Hand, and will be properly attended to.

The Epigram on Meffrs. Flood and Grattan, beginning, When Rogues fall out,' &c. is too gross for our Miscellany.

There is a confiderable Portion of Merit in Miss G.'s Verfes, considering them as her firft Poetical Attempt, but the Subject is too unimportant.

Horatio's Serenade seems rather calculated to lull his Rosalind to Sleep, than to rouze her from the Arms of Morpheus.

We have not forgot, or neglected, An Old Correspondent, but only treated him as Friends too often are treated-put him off a little longer.

The Subject recommended to our Attention by the Reverend Mr. B. is not fufficiently entertaining.

The several Articles transmitted for our Review, and hitherto neglected, will be noticed in the next Number.

а

We are happy to find that our disinterested Strictures on the Drama give so much Satisfaction to Lady and shall certainly continue them with the same Spirit and Freedom.

Sir Joseph M-is refpe&tfully informed, that Master Lexox's moftastonishing Productions will be published at the Beginning of the ensuing Year, but that no actual Subscription is neceflary,
