Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Edgar S. Van Winkle — November 26, 1836 (LTR-075b)


Richmond Va
Nov 26. 1836.

Dear Sir

Your favor of the 23d, with the paper on “The Study of the Law”, has been duly received. I have read the Essay with much interest, and shall be proud to have it in the “Messenger”. I would dislike however, to mar its effect by publishing it piece-meal, and would be much obliged for the continuation you speak of. The length of a paper such as this will be rather a recommendation than otherwise.

Very truly

Edgar A. Poe

Edgar S. Van Winkle Esqr
