A Herald repreentHtie visited

more direct charge of the book,
possibly, than any one connected
with the Jinn. In icspose to an

"Well, tlie Applcton do not
like to make promises, but I feel
justified in saying that it will be
ready inside of ninety days. 1
have now the proof-sheets of half
the first volume in my desk here.
I have just received a letter fioin
lodge Tenney who was sent down
by the house to assist Mr. Duvi
with the writing, in which he says
that he will forward inside of ten
days from the day of writing hall
of the manuscript for the second
volume, which is now ready, and
is withheld simply that Mr. Uavis
may make a slight correction in
one of the chapters. He adds,
that the printers may be put to
work on it at once, as the last half
of the second volume is about
icady, and will be here before the
printers will need it. He writes
that everything is now ready foi
the pushing forward of the work,
and that the manuscript, virtual!
prepaied to the last chattel, will
come forward at once."

that he had put in permanent re
