Cummington Sept 11 1826.
My dear Sir
I send you an article for the Miscellany and a piece of poetry. 2 I had another poetical article sent to me on which I had bestowed a good deal of labour but I cannot find it to send with this. Perhaps I may send you another of my own in season for the Oct No.
I wish that whatever is sent to me during my residence in Cummingtoin by mail, may be directed to be left at the Post Office in Worthington. I shall then get it earlier.
I shall be glad to hear from you and from the Review.

My dear Sir.
I did not get your letter of the eighth until last evening. I had previously sent on an article for the Miscellany and some lines from the Spanish. I wish you to make a correction in the title of the latter. Instead of To Mary Magdalen--let it be Mary Magdalen--otherwise I am afraid that those who are not well versed in Scripture History on reading the title may expect a copy of amatory verses addressed to some Mary or other. 1
I send you a critical notice and some more poetry for the Oct. No. 2 I supposed that I had already contributed my proportion to the Sept. No and that the account of the N Y Lyceum would go into the Oct. No. 3 As it seems this has not been convenient I fear my contributions for this No will not amount to my 20 pages. If I could get at new books I could soon dish up Critical Notices enough to make out the quantity but in my situation it is not easy to get at these. I told Mr. Carvill to send me
