    Reports that the earlier extracted account relating the success of the expedition to find a north-west passage was erroneous. By delaying other articles 'less temporary in their character' the editor has been able to include extracts from the latest reports in order to 'gratify the curiosity of that large portion of our Readers, who may not otherwise have speedy access to them' (754).
