Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Lewis J. Cist — June 3, 1844 (LTR-177a)


June 3. 44.

My Dear Mr Cist,

Yours, dated April 30th , has only this moment reached me; having been lying, ever since, at Graham’s office. I have removed to New-York, where I intend residing for the next year or two — and this will account, in part, for my not receiving the package sooner.

I was deeply interested in the memoirs you gave me of Mrs Nichols. I have long admired her writings, and the proofs contain some of the finest passages I have ever perused. I am anxious to see the entire volume, and thank you for the promise to send it to me.

I shall write, to-day, to Graham, and ask him to do as you desire, touching “The Beaten Path.”

Truly Your Friend.
Edgar A Poe

L. J. Cist Esqre

P. S. If you forward the “Poems” to Graham, he will send them to me.
