[Text: Edgar Allan Poe (?), "A Mistake" (A), from The Evening Mirror (New York), January 18, 1845, p. 2, col. 1.]


A MISTAKE. -- Through inadvertence, while penning, yesterday, a paragraph expressing our admiration of certain critical notices which appeared in a morning paper, we wrote "Tribune," when we should have written "Morning News." The criticisms to which we referred were in the latter -- although those of the former might have justified our saying as much of them.


[This item is attributed to Poe by Mabbott in his notes at the University of Iowa, where he states "Corrects error in Criticism of previous day. Sure, TOM."]
