CYPHERS.

We have on hand one or two letters from enigmatical friend to which we cannot attend, this week, owing to a press of business. In our next they shall hear from us in full. Incog. is over-hasty, and must read what we said again. We meant no offence in t world, and thought we were sufficiently careful in so wording our article as not to give any.

These notices were first attributed to Poe by Clarence S. Brigham in Edgar Allan Poe’s Contributions to Alexander’s Weekly Messenger, 1943, pp. 68 and 70-73.
