    This postcard bears the address, "John Swinton | 124 East 38th st | New York City." It is postmarked: "Camden | May | 31 | N.J.

    Though the text of this postcard is not helpful, it seems to refer to Swinton's support of Walt Whitman's 1876 edition; see Whitman's May 5, 1876 and May 6, 1876 letters to Swinton. (This postcard also resembles Whitman's May 19, 1876 postcard to Edmund W. Gosse in appearance and in handwriting.)
