Walt Whitman Esq
On the 21st inst we wrote, accepting your proposition, regarding Leaves of Grass, and other works, "as far as their incomplete condition would permit" but since that time have not heard from you, as there can be a number of copies L.of.G. sold at once, it is our desire, to announce the work at the earliest possible moment.
Hoping to receive an early reply
We remain Sir
Very Truly Yours
Rees Welsh & Co
