STAMFORD, Ct., May 13, 1852.

  MR. MERRY:—I send you the answers to the four enigmas in the May No. of the Museum; also an enigma for the next No. The answer to the enigma of 20 letters is "Smithsonian's Institute." To that of 38 letters, "General Washington at the battle of Yorktown." To that of 36, "Mrs. Jenny Goldschmidt, the Swedish singer." To that of 11 letters, "Connecticut." These answers I think are right. There is a mistake in the number of letters in the third one, but I managed to find the answer.
