Phil. June 24th/39

My Dear Sir,

Will you be kind enough to send us some more of Old Ironsides as soon as you can — immediately if possible — as the compositors are waiting for it. What they have (”The Levanter”) will not make enough for an article.

Very truly your friend E A Poe

J. E. Dow Esqr

Notes:

The article to which Poe refers was part of an extended series published in Burton’s Gentleman’s Magazineas “Sketches from the Log of Old Ironsides,” beginning in July 1839 (5:13-17) Most of the series is unsigned, with the only acknowledgment being: “By the author of ‘Old Ironsides off a Lee Shore’ “ (the earlier article having been printed in the Democratic Review of April 1839).
