Walt Whitman Esq
Camden N.J.
Dear Sir

As directed we procured a copy of "Leaves of Grass" from the binders, and have been waiting to hear from you. It would be our aim (if having control of the book) to put it before the trade at once, so that every bookseller might know, before the fall trade opens, that the book can be had regularly, this would of course be to your as well as our advantage Hoping to be favored at an early day

We are Sir
Very Truly Yours
Rees Welsh & Co
