James R. Osgood & Company to Walt Whitman, 29 March 1882

 loc_nk.00402_large.jpg Walt Whitman Esq Dear Sir:

We do not think the official mind will be satisfied with the changes you propose. They seem to think it necessary that the two poems "A Woman Waits for me" and "Ode to a Common Prostitute should be omitted altogether. If you consent to this we think the matter can be arranged without any other serious changes.

Yours truly James R. Osgood & Co.  loc_nk.00403_large.jpg  loc_nk.00404_large.jpg  loc_nk.00405_large.jpg
