Walt Whitman to Moncure D. Conway, 18 (?) March [1868]

My dear Conway,1

I send the accompanying article2 in hopes you can do me the favor to dispose of it to an English magazine. The one I first think of is the Fortnightly Review. If not that, some other. I place the whole business, price, &c. in your absolute control. Only understand that the piece is to be published here in the Galaxy for May. Some English magazine for May is what would suit best. In haste.
