theatrical community in the united kingdom, and he had determined upon addressing them by letter, through the medium either of the managers or their deputies ; and thug have put it in the power of the individuals to give, or to withhold the sanction of their names. In conformity with this plan, five advertising letters were despatched. His professional pursuits, and other avocations, prevented his accomplishing the whole scheme at one time. A few weeks escaped, and he. began to suspect he had been guilty of an impertinence. Six months have now elapsed, and three of his letters out of the five remain unanswered, unnoticed !

This painful experience prevented him from running the chance of being again wounded by silent hints of rebuke. To the other two gentlemen, (Mr. Robertson, the manager of the Sheffield company, and Mr. Fitzgerald, the acting manager at Norwich) Mr. M. considers himself highly indebted, not only for the promptitude of their replies, but for the friendly interest they expressed for his success through life. To Mr. Matthews, of Covent-Garden, he fools much obliged for the facility with which he furnished Mr. M. with the correctione and additions to the instances of longevity given in page 153.

To the subscribers in general, he once more offers his acknowledgmenls; should the ensuing sheets be found to possess any claim to public approbation, he is convinced they will congratulate themselves for the assistance they have furnished. Should the work be found unworthy of support, he will congratulate himself that the contributions were not extended,
