June 28 1882

My dear Ben: Ticknor

I wish you would do me the favor to have the steel plate, (we used in L of G) properly enveloped & sent by express, directed to Rees Welsh & Co: 23 south 9th street, (as above.) I have forgotten the address of your plate printer in B[oston] who has it.1

Yours (notwithstanding)
Walt Whitman


Notes:

1. On May 19 Ticknor advised J. W. Daniels, of Boston, to hold the plate subject to Whitman's orders (The Library of Congress, Washington D.C.). [back]
