Walt Whitman to Anne Gilchrist, 14 February [1877]

Dearest friend

I returned last evening from a week's stay at White Horse1—am feeling pretty well for me—heard of your call during my absence—Think of coming over to-morrow, Thursday, afternoon (say about 4)—As you will see by the enclosed card Mr Burroughs is to be in Phila​ : on a flying visit, & expects to be at your house to-morrow afternoon at 5. So long till to-morrow—& love to all—

Walt Whitman
