Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Rufus Wilmot Griswold — October 26, 1845 (LTR-211)


New-York: Oct. 26- 45

My Dear Griswold,

Will you aid me at a pinch — at one of the greatest pinches conceivable? If you will, I will be indebted to you, for life. After a prodigious deal of manoeuvring, I have succeeded in getting the “Broadway Journal” entirely within my own control. It will be a fortune to me if I can hold it — and I can do it easily with a very trifling aid from my friends. May I count you as one? Lend me $50 and you shall never have cause to regret it.

Reply by return of mail, if possible.

Truly yours,
Edgar A Poe
