Peter Doyle to Walt Whitman, 14 October [1868]

 uva.00363.001.jpg letter 9 1/2 Dear Walt

Since i received your Papers last monday i have been Very anxious to write to you but the Death of one of my Cousins delayed me somewhat & yet there is nothing unusual going on here I believe the road is running the same as when you went away with the exception of our new President During Monday & Tuesday there was a good deal of excitement over the elections in the several states but today it has got back to old standing there is also a report out here that there was a Plot to assasinate the President but i dont think there is any truth in the report

all the boys send their love Pete x x  uva.00363.002.jpg

I sent you a letter last sunday
