Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Eli Bowen — October 18, 1848 (LTR-278a)


New-York — Octo. 18 — 48

My Dear Sir,

About three weeks ago I wrote you quite a long letter, enclosing a MS copy of “The Raven” and making you a proposition in regard to the establishment of a Magazine — but have received no reply.

In addition to what I then said I have now to say that I am willing to accept your offer about the Correspondence, and will commence whenever you think proper — provided you decline the tour &c as I suggested. Please write & oblige

Yours truly
Edgar A Poe

Eli Bowen Esqr
