Walt Whitman to Richard J. Hinton, 3 November 1866

Dear Hinton,

The bearer, my friend, Mr. Shambaugh,1 was showing me a letter he has received, (he is on a Committee of Sold. & Sail. Union League)—I think it ought to be published in full. You make a brief introduction to it & let it go in a Sunday Chronicle.2 Let him have a proof when it is set up, to bring to me.

Yours &c

Walt Whitman
