[ New York, c April 1, 1827]
I meant to have sent you by Mr. Gray1 a Review [of] the life of E. D. Clarke the traveller--but I am unable to f[ind] it in season. I shall send it by Friday's boat. It will [make] 2 10 or twelve pages--so that you may calculate upon me for tha[t] amount for the Review part.

I send you an article on Dr. Clarke. 1 --I suppose you have the book at Boston. If there are any inaccuracies in the language I beg you will correct them. I send you also some poetry I have received from Jones. He wishes that the three sonnets should not all appear in the same No. I wish you therefore to print the first and second in the next No. and reserve the other for the June No. 2

P. S. Next week I shall send you some verses of my own & some critical notices.--

I send you a batch of poetry which I have been trying to patch up for the U. S. Review. 1 Some critical notices which I intended to send are not finished. They will make 2 or 3 pages & will go by the next boat.--
