The persons who are desirous of accepting Mr. Luckcock's offer (p. 10) are requested to signify the same letter immediately addressed to him. It would be inconvenient to us to be the medium of communication.
Anna's lines have been conveyed to the persons who are most interesced in the kind feelings which they express.
F. B.'s letter has been handed to us, We are sorry that he has taken offence at our determivation to close the controversy respecting Chapel-Deeds. On a review of the matter, however, we canuot help thinking that in the decision we consulted the wishes of our readers. Several communications besides F. B.'s were put aside; and it will generally happen that whenever a controversy in a periodical work is brought to an end there will be some papers unused. This is no doubt undesirable, but it is a less evil than that of having a subject hunted down.
In our next number, we shall insert three Original Letters of WILLIAM PENN's to RICHARD BAXTER.
A correspondent suggests that we should take the earliest opportunity of correcting an error which crept into the obituary of the last number, p. 56 col. 2, wherein Dr. Alexander is said to have been “a pupil of the late Sir Wm. Blizard;" Sir William being now living and President of the College of Surgeons.
