BEING A NEW SERIES OF
The Scots Magazine.
A Correspondent has brought a charge of Plagiarism against the writer of "LIVING AUTHORS, A DREAM," which appeared in one of our late Numbers. We have too high an opinion of that writer's originality to suppose that any other person ever dreamed his dream; but, like people who are fond of repeating their dreams, he may, for any thing we know to the contrary, have related it before. We wish, to put the matter out of doubt, that he would send us his third dream, without delay, and, if it is akin to the former, and has never been seen elsewhere, the accusation will be laid to rest.
The Correspondents of the EDINBURGH MAGAZINE AND LITERARY MISCELLANY are respectfully requested to transmit their Communications for the Editor to ARCHIBALD CONSTABLE and COMPANY, Edinburgh, or LONGMAN and COMPANY, London; to whom also orders for the Work should be particularly addressed.
