152 A. [Ln.?] N.E., Washington, D.C.:1
Wednesday, Nov. 24th 1880.

Dear Sir,

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,
Yours Faithfully,
David Hutcheson.


Notes:

1. Whitman crossed out this letter and wrote on the back part of a draft letter to Rees Welsh & Company, dated June 20, 1882[back]

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]
