1. This quotation was removed in 1819: "An editor must be all things to all men, that he may gain some.
2. This wording change occurred for 1819 edition "Black-guardism" was replaced with "Scurrility".
3. In shifting the wording for 1819, this sentence was deleted, and the previous clause added: "I see here, said he, the Principal of the Academy, a man of letters and learning. I would wish to hear from him how the ancients managed these matters:"
4. The end of this sentence previously read: "or that both go together."
5. Deleted sentence: "The passions of the heart will create differences."
6. The rest of this paragraph originally read: "O Jehu! Said a man laughing, where will you get a match for Porcupine? A man neither of conscience or shame, taught and educated as he is, with typography that is adequate? Who will be willing to be the ostensible vehicle of language becoming a scavenger? Can any one be found who will have front from insensibility of heart, or the forehead of brass, to bear the imputation? If we could get some Teague ORegan now, that did not know what we were doing with him: that would think it an honour to be employed; that would not take amiss the proposition of making him the conduit of reproach, and dishonourable [inuendo]; in short, from whom it could be concealed on what account he was chosen; the project was chosen; the project might be plausible."
7. This phrase used to read: "Teague ORegan that you want".
8. The last part of this Latin phrase, " qui miscuit utile dulci." was excised in 1819. While it was originally attributed to an academician, Brackenridge chose to leave the quotation without attribution for the 1819 edition.
