Nothing new or different with me. Want to come on to Wash[ington] before long, for two or three days.
This piece of correspondence is addressed, "Pete Doyle | M street South, bet
4½ & 6th | Washington, D.C." It is postmarked: "Camden | Sep | (?)|
N.J.; Carrier | Sep | 5 | 9 AM."
The year is assumed because Whitman did not seriously plan to return to Washington until 1875. [back]
