Walt Whitman to Whitelaw Reid, 21 September [1878]

My dear Reid,

Won't the herewith do for an editorial these days?1

The price is $10—

Walt Whitman

I am keeping quite well & hearty yet for me—


  • 1. Whitman sent "Gathering the Corn," which appeared in the New York Tribune on October 24. It was later reprinted in Good-bye My Fancy (The Complete Writings of Walt Whitman, [New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1902], 7:14–17). See the letters from Whitman to Whitelaw Reid of September 30, 1878 and November 27, 1878. [back]
