You must, I am sure, have felt great surprise at receiving no answer to your two obliging communications <1> – but the fact is that I received them both together only this afternoon. This will, I trust, be my sufficient apology. I rejoice to hear that you approve of the two numbers of the Philological Museum wch have appeared & trust that you will find the same reason to approve of the work in future. I have Endeavoured of the last 5 or 6 years to set this publication on foot, tho’ without success till this last Autumn. Now there appears to be somewhat of a revival of feeling for Ancient Literature & I trust that the museum may serve to cherish it. At the present moment, I am so much engaged that Mr Hare, <2> my brother Editor, is acting almost alone – & he will, I am sure, have great pleasure in receiving any communication from you. I will take care to return your Paper by the first friend who goes to London.

I am
Yr faithful Servt
