Walt Whitman to Josiah Child, 27 June 1879

 loc.01265.001_large.jpg Dear Mr Child

Upon coming back here I found the "Tobacco Plants" all right—Thanks to you for them, (& many favors & attentions)—I rec'd​ about a week ago the P O draft for $15.20 from Mr Fraser, for my article, & immediately notified Mr F.2

I am well, for me—am taking a rest from my three months' visit to New York—our heated term now here.
