Walt Whitman to William F. Channing, 27 September 1868

My dear Dr. Channing:

I yesterday received your kind note. I gladly accept your invitation & hospitality.1 My leave of absence continues for some time yet, & I should probably like to visit you for a few days, just subsequently to the middle of October—But I will write you a day or two before I come.

I send my best respects & love to Mrs. Channing. As I write we are having a rainy, dark sulky Sunday—after a rainy night. I am well & quietly enjoying holiday.

I wish you & wife to read my last piece2 in The Broadway London Magazine for October. You can get it at any good bookstand.

Walt Whitman.
