Walt Whitman to John Swinton, 24 June [1874]

Your good letter rec'd this morning. Come & see me whenever you can. It is very easy—6 or 8 trains fro & to N. Y. every day & night. Come either by boat to Amboy, & so directly here to Camden depot, (only 60 rods from this house,) or from Jersey City to West Philadelphia depot, & so down Market st. by horse cars to Camden ferry at foot of it. I am about the same. Jeff is here with me (from St. Louis) for a couple of days.
