I send notices of Letters from the Bahama Islands & Simms's poems, 2 and of Almacks and Paul Jones. 3 The two latter are written by R. C. Sands Esq who wrote the translation of the Stars from De La Martine in the last No. and who will expect to be paid for them and also, as I should have mentioned before, for the Stars, the poetry to be paid for of course at the same rate as the prose.
I send also some verses of my own 4 and the poem by Digamma, who as you may perhaps know is Professor G. W. Doane of the new College at Hartford (Conn.). 5. He has published a volume of poems, and although somewhat inferior to Lord Byron and a few others in the poetic line, is said to be a good scholar and a man of considerable talent. I do not think the verses enclosed particularly fine, but the[y] will do, and the author has written and may write better--
