Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Isaac Munroe — January 31, 1844 (LTR-168)


My dear Sir,

I have been endeavouring for the last two days to see you and beg of you to do me the kindness to call attention, in the “Patriot” to a lecture on “American Poetry”, which I propose to deliver this evening (Wednesday) at the Odd Fellows’ Hall in Gay Street. I hope yet to have the honor of seeing you before I leave town.

If not too late, will you say a good word for me in this afternoon’s paper.

Most respectfully yours,
Edgar A. Poe

Mr. Isaac Munroe.

Wednesday morning
