Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Joel Barlow Sutherland — January 13, 1844 (LTR-166)


My Dear Sir,

Will you permit me to introduce to you my friend Mr Robert Travers, of this city, who will hand you this note? He is an applicant for a post in the Revenue Service. If you could further his views in any regard, I would consider myself as under the very deepest personal obligation.

Mr Travers is of the Hughes’ family, of Southwark, which has always possessed much political influence. As an experienced seaman, he is, also, well qualified for the appointment he solicits.

Very truly & respectfully Yours,
Edgar A. Poe

Philadelphia. Jan: 13. 1844.

J. B. Sutherland Esqre
