Postcard from Walt Whitman to Ellen M. O'Connor, 9 March [1874]

Yours rec'd​ last night. The let up & somewhat favorable condition mentioned in my letter of Sunday still continues. Have not the slightest idea of hastening to W[ashington]—Shan't come till I get good & ready. Continue to write often. Wish Ch.2 to write me all news, & oftener.

    This postcard apparently refers to Whitman's March 8, 1874 letter to Ellen M. O'Connor.

    This postcard bears the address, "Mrs. E. M. O'Connor | 1015 O street, near 11th N. W. | Washington, D.C." It is postmarked: "Camden | (?)| N.J."

  • 2. Whitman refers here to Charles Eldridge. [back]
