Text: Robert Tyler to Edgar Allan Poe — March 31, 1843


White House, March 31st, 1843.

My Dear Sir, — I have received your letter in which you express your belief that Judge Blythe would appoint you to a situation in the Custom House provided you have a reiteration of my former recommendation of you. It gives me pleasure to say to you that it would gratify me very sensibly, to see you appointed by Judge Blythe. I am satisfied that no one is more competent, or would be more satisfactory in the discharge of any duty connected with the office.

Believe me, my dear sir,

Truly yours
[Robert Tyler]

Edgar A. Poe Esq.
