My dear friend

I am sorry to have to send you word that I am not feeling in good trim at all to-day, & shall be unable to meet you & the other friends at dinner—

I send you herewith a couple of pictures (I call it my Quaker picture)—one is for your father—also the books herewith1—also my love to you—


Walt Whitman
