Walt Whitman to Peter Doyle, 20 August [1875]

All yours rec'd​ —Still here—Still about the same—sitting here by the open window—very bright & sunny, & pretty hot—(bad head to-day).

    This piece of correspondence is addressed, "Pete Doyle, | M street South—bet 4½ & 6th | Washington, D.C." It is postmarked: "Camden | Aug | 20 | N.J.; Carrier | Aug | 21 | 8 AM."

    Dating depends upon Whitman's almost inflexible habit of sending Doyle a line on Friday. Note also the reference to his "bad head" in this and the following letter.
