Text: Edgar Allan Poe to John Pendleton Kennedy — December 19, 1834 (LTR-039)


Balt. Dec. 19 / 34

Dr Sir,

About four weeks ago I sent you a note respecting my Tales of the F. Club [[Tales of the Folio Club]], and matters have since occurred to me that make me doubt whether you have recd. [[received]] it. You would confer upon me the greatest favour by dropping a few words for me in the P.O.

Very respy
Edgar Allan Poe

Jno. P. Kennedy, Esqr.



“Very respy” is a common abbreviation for “Very respectfully,” appearing in Poe's letters with some frequency.
