Walt Whitman to Anne Gilchrist, 27 August [1882]

All going on well with me—the type-setting of my new prose book "Specimen Days" will be all finished the coming week & the book out in ten days afterward—same size, price, type, binding & general appearance as last L. of G. The Phila: publishers (L of G) are now paying out their third edition. As I write, (Sunday afternoon) up in my 3d story room, heavy clouds & rain falling in torrents. My brother & sister well—I saw Mrs. Stafford yesterday—all well there—love to H[erbert] and G[race]—
