Walt Whitman to Karl Knortz, 19 June 1883

Thanks for the copy German rendering "Cradle Endlessly Rocking" & for all the other German renderings of my pieces which you have sent me, & which I carefully keep, & prize—Dr R M Bucke has just published a book about me & my poems—& having two or three advance copies (in paper) at my disposal I should like to send you one. Shall I send it as before (by mail) to cor: Morris av: and 155th Street? (See the N. Y. Critic June 16)—

Walt Whitman
