Walt Whitman to Anne Gilchrist, 26 December 1871

Dear friend,

Your late letter has just reached me—& I write at once to at least say specifically that both your letter of Sept. 6 and that of Oct. 151 safely reached me—this that comes to-day being the third.

Again I will say that I am sure I appreciate & accept your letters, & all they stand for, as fully as even you, dear friend, could wish—& as lovingly & bona fide.2

Walt Whitman
