      Description Clipping reads: EPIGRAMS—AN ILLEGITIMATE ESSAY, | WITH PREFIXES AND EXAMPLES.
      Notes Position: left, underneath ''[Epigrams]'' and continues across two clippings onto the top right (the second clipping is side by side with ''[Epigrams]'').

      The clippings consist of an essay explaining the usage of epigrams.  It is noteworthy that the item (2 clippings) resides on the same page as Simms's ''Epigrams''; however, Simms draws a line through the clipping to likely indicate that it was not his work.  It is possible that this essay appeared in the same Magnolia issue in December 1841, and that all the items on [Page 50] of the scrapbook comprise one item.  What can be said with certainty is that Simms devoted the entire page of the scrapbook to epigrams.
