ACKNOWLEDGMENTS TO CORRESPONDENTS.

The Songs sent to us by Brother B. want interest.
To the merits of Dr. P. we chearfully subscribe ; but his appointment of

P. G. M. was before noticed in our Magazine. The Eulogy sent us by A
Member of the Lodge of Fortitude, is too fulsome to be pleasing to our readers,
and, we are sure, must, if published, be very offensive to the delicacy of that

respectable gentleman. In The Briton we discover several lines from Rowe's writings, with no distinctive

marks as quotations, and are much inclined to think that we have read many other of the lines before. We must therefore decline inserting it as an Original Poem. The Memoirs of the late William Strahan, Esq. intended to have been given in

this number, are unavoidably deferred till our next, when they will be ac

companied by a PORTRAIT. The List of Lodges of Instruction sent by our much esteemed Brother A. came un.

fortunately too late for insertion this month. We hope to receive similar communications from other quarters. We studiously avoid inserting articles from the Freemasons' Calendar, lest we

should injure the sale of that annual publication, the profits of which are generously applied to the increase of the Charity Fund. Any other conduct would justly exclude us from the favour of the Grand Lodge, as well as of every well-wisher to our benevolent institution. This will be an answer to J. D.’s enquiry.

Any of the PORTRAITS contained in this work may be had in Frames, handsomely

gilt and glazed, at 3s. 6d. each, by applying at the British Letter-FOUNDRY, Bream's BUILDINGS, Chancery-Lane, where Communications for the ProPRIETOR 'will be thankfully received.
