Persons should be Parsons.

Not all persons should be parsons, but on page 12, Vol. XIX, the name T. W. Persons should read Parsons. The surname, as printed, ‘got by’ unnoticed. Mr. Parsons was a person, and though his occupation or profession is unknown to the editor, we feel sure that Mr. Parsons was not a parson, but an entertaining writer, translator of Dante, a poet, and one of the story-tellers of the Wayside Inn.
