Walt Whitman to William Torrey Harris, 28 September 1880

Have finished my summer tour of St Lawrence & the Thousand Islands &c.—have jaunted over 3000 miles mostly river & Lakes—(I believe I sent you a couple of my current letters here in Canada)2 & am now on my way home to Camden N J (stopping here a short time)—I am unusually well & robust for a half-paralytic—Camden will still remain my address. Thanks for the Journals3 which have reach'd​ me—
