[Text: Edgar Allan Poe (?), Notice of Arthur's Lady's Magazine" (A), from The Evening Mirror (New York), December 13, 1844, p. 2, col. 2, lower middle.]

[page 2, column 2, continued:]

ARTHUR'S LADIES' MAGAZINE. -- The January number of this well edited periodical is issued, and is very rich in embellishments. It is only necessary to say that they are six in number, besides fifteen illustrated initial letters. Three of the large embellishments are equal to any which have appeared in the magazines this year. The literary matter is of the first excellence, and of an attractive variety. Graham, 160 Nassau st. [[St.]], has this work for sale.

[The notice was attributed tentatively to Poe by Hull, saying, "There is nothing in this brief notice to suggest its author; it may be Poe's." The notice is not mentioned by Heartman & Canny or Mabbott.]
