Text: Edgar Allan Poe to John C. Myers, Samuel Williams or William Graeff, Jr — March 1, 1844 (LTR-170)


Philadelphia   March 1. 44.


Through some accident which I am at a loss to understand, your letter dated and postmarked Decr 29, has only this moment come to hand; having been lying, ever since, in the Phila P. Office. I hope, therefore, you will exonerate me from the charge of discourtesy in not sooner replying to your very flattering request.

I presume that your Lectures are over for the season; but, should this not be the case, it will give me great pleasure to deliver a Discourse before your Society at any period you may appoint; not later than the 9th inst:

With High Respect
Yr Ob St
Edgar A Poe

Mess: Jno: C. Myers Sam: Williams Wm Greaff Jr
