Walt Whitman to Peter Doyle, 26 March [1875]

Still around, much the same—ups & downs, (plenty of the latter)—Ah, Pete, if you [could] only come on to Phil.​ & lay over, instead of Balt[imore]. Remembrances to Mr. & Mrs. N[ash] & Mrs. C.—card & papers came—

    This piece of correspondence is addressed, "Pete Doyle, | M st. South, bet 4½ & 6th | Washington, D.C." It is postmarked: "Camden | Mar | 26 | (?) ; Carrier | 27 | Mar | 8 AM."

    This and Whitman's March 19, 1875 letter to Doyle were written on Fridays, if the year is correct. In both notes Whitman seems to refer to the serious relapse in February 1875. This card alludes to Doyle's new, but temporary, position in Baltimore; see also Whitman's June 25, 1875 letter to Doyle.
