Thanks for the '81 ticket which has come safe to hand.1 I am not certain whether I sent the enclosed slip at the time—so send it now—

Notes:

1. D. M. Zimmerman, the secretary and treasurer of the Camden & Atlantic Railroad, sent the poet a railroad pass (Whitman's Commonplace Book, Charles E. Feinberg Collection of the Papers of Walt Whitman, 1839–1919, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.). [back]
