[Text: Edgar Allan Poe (?), Notice of Hood's Whimsicalities (A), from The Evening Mirror (New York), January 21, 1845, p. 2, col. 5.]

HOOD'S WHIMSICALITIES. -- The title-page of this book will be recommendation enough to all who have ever heard of Thomas Hood -- unquestionably one of the most extraordinary men of his time, combining mental features hitherto considered antagonistical.

[This item was attributed to Poe by W. D. Hull as "probably Poe's." Hull also notes that both this item and Poe's notices of Hood in The Broadway Journal (Aug and Sept, 1845) use the word "extraordinary."]
