I am obliged to your attention in regard to the names of writers of the articles. 2
I have just read an article in the Statesman of yr city on the March No. The writer of it complains that we review books that have been published a good while. I cannot believe however that he very sincerely disapproves this practice--since his own article on the March No is published on the 9th of April several days after the April No. was out. 3

I send also a sentence or two about Mr Cubi's proposed work which I suppose may go in at the end of the list of New publications. 4

I send you Notices of Tor Hill & another book. 1 If the article about the Fine Arts in the reign of Charles V is not printed I think it would not be best to do it--for I have just seen it in a Weekly newspaper-- 2
