Philadelphia — Sep. 24 — 41

My Dear Thomas,

I have just received your last; and now write in reply merely to say that I have succeeded in getting Willig of this city to publish the song. Please send it on as soon as possible. He says he cannot afford to give anything for it beyond a few copies — but will promise to get it Up handsomely. I suppose you had better send it through me. Best respects to Dow & believe me

Your sincere friend
Edgar A. Poe

P. S. If you can get me Drake’s autograph and Prentice’s, or “Amelia”’s of KY pray do so. The signature is what I chiefly want. If you can get them soon I would be greatly obliged. Our design includes only literary people.
