TO CORRESPONDENTS. THE Editor begs to return his thanks for the numerous letters with which he has been honoured. Some of them have been inserted, but the length of the gazettes has rendered it necessary to defer others till the next Number. The Editor has to solicit further favours of the same kind, addressed to the Office, 38, Essex Street, Strand.

The Proprietors deem it likewise necessary to return their grateful thanks for the warm patronage with which the Military Chronicle has been honoured. It usually bappens, that periodical works are brought out at first, with a great loss, and only become lucrative after much time and labour. The MILITARY CHRONICLE has met with most distinguished favour, and from its very commencement, has experienced a sale which is exceeded by few established works.

The Proprietors feel this encouragenient the more thankfully, because the First Number had to labour against the usual disadvantages of all first numbers of Periodical Works; much haste, and some confusion. Under these circumstances, there were many inaccuracies. They feel it necessary particularly to make mention of the Map. The Editor had expressed a wish that thore should be a map illustrative of the gazette; and the Proprietors, in their haste, gave the execution of it to the nearest workman, of whom they knew nothing but that ho professed to be an engraver. The plate was not brought home till within un hour that it was wanted for the press, and in consequence, neither Editor ot Proprietor saw the map till it was in the Chronicle. Had they seen it, they most certainly would not have admitted it. To retuedy this defect, however, a Map will be given in the next or following number, drawn by an Artillery Officer, and engraved by a Geographer. Six Numbers of the Military Chronicle will make a volume, and when the Binder is doing them up, he will of course take out the map given in the first Number, and replace it by the one about to be given in the third or fourth.

.. Qrders-for the Royal MILITARY CHRONICLE, to be given to - the Booksellers or Newsmen of the respective

Towns where ordered.
