[Text: Edgar Allan Poe (?), "Literary Larceny" (A), from The Evening Mirror (New York), February 26, 1845, p. 2, col. 2.]

LITERARY LARCENY. -- A writer in the 'True Sun,' asserts that a tale in 'The Book of Beauty' for 1845, by Miss Milnor, entitled 'Amelia -- a story of real life,' is the same, word for word, as a story entitled the 'Cognette,' written for the Drawing Room Scrap Book by Sheridan Knowles , six years ago.

[This item was attributed to Poe by T. O. Mabbott. Mabbott's notes at the University of Iowa say, "the subject is a favorite with him, and I incline to assign all plagiarism articles not clearly by Willis to Poe." An additonal comment by Mabbott reads, "Very late to be Poe's but just possibly a left over filler."]
