JR OSGOOD AND CO
211 TREMONT STREET,
Monday July 18 1881.
Walt Whitman, Esq.
We have your favor and note what you say about the poems.
We can start the book whenever you wish, and should consider six to eight weeks sufficient time for it.
When ready we should of course bind up some of them in leather for holiday sales & hope to do well with them.
Very truly Yours:
James R. Osgood & Co
