My Dear Mr Whitman

Enclosed please find CK for $12. Please send me at your convenience four copies of L of G. Think I can dispose of orders still & wonder I never thought of it before. Do you remember the graceful willowy reader we heard together—bird-like & feather-like? She is fat.

Yours truly
D. L. Proudfit


Notes:

1. This letter has been cut into pieces, and Whitman wrote prose notes on the back of each of the letter fragments. [back]
