Notes:

1. This postcard bears the address, "John Swinton | 134 E. 38th Street | New York City." It is postmarked: "Camden | (?)| 12 | N.J."

This postcard can be plausibly assigned to 1875, since Swinton visited Whitman within a few weeks; see Whitman's April 1, 1875 letter to John Burroughs. [back]
