Text: Edgar Allan Poe to John Neal — June 3, 1840 (LTR-094)


Philadelphia. June 4. [[June 3.]]

My Dear Sir

As you gave me the first jog in my literary career, you are in a measure bound to protect me & keep me rolling. I therefor now ask you to aid me with your influence, in whatever manner your experience shall suggest.

It strikes me that I never write you except to ask a favor, but my friend Thomas will assure you that I bear you always in mind — holding you in the highest respect and esteem.

Most truly yours
Edgar A Poe

John Neal Esqr
