Walt Whitman to Charles W. Eldridge, 29 September [1873]

Dear Charley,

I enclose the money for Walter Godey. Please go down & see how things are going on—& pay him. Please write me at once, as I shall want to hear if the money comes safe.

Don't be alarmed—but I am worse to-day—having a bad spell—a succession of those blurs I used to complain of, only far more intense & persistent—it is now ½ past 3, & I have had a succession of them all day—still I am not dismayed—still think I shall get well—We are moving into the new house to-day.1
