David Hutcheson to Walt Whitman, 24 November 1880

 upa.00136.004_large.jpg Dear Sir,

I recieved the two volumes of your works yesterday by mail.2 I have had a copy of them for some years, but I wished to send one to a friend in Scotland.

Shall your many friends here have the pleasure of seeing you in Washington this winter?

With good wishes, Yours Faithfully, David Hutcheson.  upa.00136.003_large.jpg
