19th Septr. 1889.

Dear Mr. Walt Whitman,

I owe to you my thanks for many strong, beautiful, bracing words and thoughts of yours—thoughts that have opened my mind to new possibilities, larger, truer things.

You will let me thank you, I know, because I like to do this.

It would be very happy to know you, dear W. Whitman—very happy—perhaps, if we cannot meet here, I may know you in Heaven—I hope so.

Very truly yours,
Fanny [M?]. Grundy
