TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—The homely melody to which I have attached the following beautiful lines was suggested by an idea of the antiquated personages supposed to sing them. It is an attempt at imitation in what I conceive to have been the diatonic genus of the music of the ancients; and it is also to the studied omission of one of the seven notes of the scale it belongs to, that, I think, it partly owes its remarkable peculiarity. It is necessary to have it sung and played two or three times before it can be understood ; and if after such a trial you should deem it worthy of being published by you, it is much at your service.

Yours, &c.
