TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS AND CORRESPONDENTS.

WITH the present Number of LA BELLE ASSEMBLEE is published No. 118, being our annual SUPPLEMENTAL NUMBER, containing a Critical Review of the most distinguished Works of Literature for the year 1818.

[ocr errors]

We are sorry to reject Matilda's lines on A Summer's Day. If, as she says, we have before inserted her contributions, they must have been more poetical than the above lines.

We would rather wish to throw a veil over the lamented death of a late great and virtuous patriot, than to insert any more elegiac lines on an occasion so awful, and which we never can defend. The Epicedium of W. H. A. is taken care of, if he wishes to have it again.

The New Grammatical Productions, both French and English, came too late to be noticed, and their review must be deferred to the commencement of the new year.

The favourite Songs of The Sun that lights the Roses, and The Pang of Farewell, came too late to be reviewed this year.

Our new Correspondent, who desired the BELLE ASSEMBLEE might be sent to Mr. Wilson's, will find the requested arrangement complied with, at present; it may, however, happen, from the extreme pressure of usual contributions, that we cannot always be able to insert what he may chance to send us.

Edward Wortley, and The Exile of Scotland, came too late to be reviewed this year. It shall be noticed as early as possible.

Persons who reside abroad, and who wish to be supplied with this Work every month, as published, may have it sent to them to New York, Halifax, Quebec, and to any part of the West Indies, by Mr. THORNHILL, of the General Post Office, at No. 21, Sherborne-lane; to the Brazils, Madeira, Gibraltar, Malta, and all parts of the Mediterranean; to Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Portugal; and to France and Holland, at 178 6d. per Quarter, by Mr. Cowie, at the Foreign Newspaper Office, No. 22, Sherborne-lane. The money to be paid at the time of Subscribing, for either three, six, nine, or twelve months.-Orders also, post paid, on the above conditions, will be punctually attended to, if addressed to JOHN BELL, Proprietor of this Magazine, Weekly Messenger Office, No, 104, Drury-lane, London.

JANUARY 1, 1819.

London: Printed by and for JOHN BELL, Proprietor of this Magazine, and of the WEEKLY, MESSENGER, No. 104, Drury-Lane.
