Dear W. Whitman

Hope you got safe home. James R. Osgood wants to see the material for your complete book. Can you let him have a look at it, or write him & tell him about it?1

Always faithfully yours
John Boyle O'Reilly


1. Whitman wrote a letter to James R. Osgood on the back of this letter from O'Reilly. See the letter from Whitman to Osgood of May 8, 1881[back]
