Walt Whitman to William D. O'Connor, 14 December [1882]

I fear you have been derelict in forwarding Dowden's letter I sent you two or three weeks since, as I requested—If so, please send it now, to John Burroughs—(Send the printed Academy criticism to Dr Bucke.)2

I am well as usual—Just starting for Phila​ —fine, sunny, crispy forenoon—
