[Text: Harper & Brothers to E. A. Poe - February 20, 1839]

New York, Feb. 20th 1839.

Edgar A. Poe, Esq.

Dr. Sir,

Your favour of the 19th has been recd.

We are inclined to think that "Pym" has not succeeded or been received as well in this country as it has in England. When we published the work, we sent 100 copies of it to London -- and we presume they have been sold. In addition to which we understand that an English edition has been printed. We have not seen any review of it in the English papers yet -- Should any come to hand, we will preserve and forward them to you. Are you connected with any of the newspapers in Philadelphia? If so, we should be please to send you a book for review occasionally.

Respectfully,

Harper & Brothers.
