Still unwell and paralysed, but up and around. Post-office address at Camden, New Jersey, U. S. A.; shall probably remain there. Design to bring out a volume, mélange of prose and verse, partly fresh matter, this summer.1


Notes:

1. On April 14, 1875, William Michael Rossetti wrote to Whitman that he would include in The Academy "the substance of your last note," probably a postcard. The text given here appeared on April 17, 1875. Rossetti also observed that he had quoted from Whitman's estimate of Robert Burns in The Academy, 7 (February 27, 1875), 214–215. [back]
