My dear Ben: Ticknor

I wish you would do me the favor to have the steel plate, (we used in L of G) properly enveloped & sent by express, directed to Rees Welsh & Co: 23 south 9th street, (as above.) I have forgotten the address of your plate printer in B[oston] who has it.1

Yours (notwithstanding)
Walt Whitman


1. On May 19 Ticknor advised J. W. Daniels, of Boston, to hold the plate subject to Whitman's orders (The Library of Congress, Washington D.C.). [back]
