you will see sad havoc with--It has yet too many words and the verse has no modulation, but if you have not an abundance of poetry on hand besides I believe it may do.-- 6
I have in my hands a poem by W. T. W. Tone of Alexandria which has been sent me for publication in the U. S. Review. Parts of it have great merit--, & parts are somewhat prosaic-- It is long--it would take up 10 pages at least in the journal--but as it is in several canto's it might be divided. I must however look at it again before I venture to send it on. 7
I shall in a day or two send you the prose.
I will be very much obliged to you to mention to Mr. H. Gray that Mr. Sedgwick has paid my note to Bliss and White--I not being in funds.-- 8
We have not recd. the Oct No. yet but suppose that it is on its way. I do not mean that after this month there shall be any delay in getting to you my proportion of the matter for the journal. It may as easily be sent you by the tenth of the month preceding the publication as at any time.--
Mr. Carvill has taken pains to ascertain whether the subscribers in this city will continue to take the journal and finds that they are generally willing to do so.--
I am sir
