Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Frederick Gleason — February 5, 1849 (LTR-302a)


New-York — Feb. 5 — ‘49

Dear Sir,

On returning home, after ten days’ absence, I find your letter of the 22nd. Ult. What you say is satisfactory; and shall be happy to contribute, as often as possible, to “The Flag”. In the course of next week, I will send you a tale or sketch; and in the meantime I leave with Mr. French a short poem which I hope will please you.

I am glad to hear that, among other contributors, you have made arrangements with Mrs. Osgood, and Mr. Benjamin. Their names can not fail to sustain the reputation of your paper and give it tone.

Very cordially yours,
Edgar A. Poe.

F. Gleason, Esq.
