June 25 1881.

Walt Whitman, Esq,
Dear Sir:

We are ready at your convenience to go on with the typesetting. It will hardly pay you to stay here the whole time, as it will take some weeks, & proofs can as well go to you at Camden as elsewhere.

If you desire to personally oversee the beginning, (or all, if you prefer), shall be happy to see you at any time, & do our best to facilitate matters.

Very Truly
James R. Osgood & Co
