Walt Whitman to Ellen M. O'Connor, 29 May [1874]

Rec'd​ your welcome letter this morning. Much the same with me as when I last wrote—far from well, with frequent alternations—but up & around every day.

    This postcard bears the address, "Mrs. E. M. O'Connor, | 1015 O st near 11th N. W. | Washington, D.C." It is postmarked: "Camden | May | 29 (?)| N.J.; Carrier | 30 | May | 8 AM."

    Note the reference to Whitman's May 15, 1874 letter to O'Connor and the similar phrasing of this postcard and Whitman's May 29, 1874 letter to Peter Doyle.
