Wednesday, Nov. 24th 1880.
I recieved the two volumes of your works yesterday by mail.2 I have had a copy of them for some years, but I wished to send one to a friend in Scotland.
Shall your many friends here have the pleasure of seeing you in Washington this winter?
With good wishes,
2. On November 22, Whitman noted in his Daybooks and Notebooks sending "a set two Vols" to Hutcheson (Daybooks and Notebooks, ed. William White [New York: New York University Press, 1977], 1:212). [back]
