Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Littleton W. Tazewell — July 16, 1836 (LTR-070)


Richmond. July 16, 1836.

Dr Sir,

At the request of Mr T. W. White, I take the liberty of soliciting, for publication in the Messenger, your Reasons for declining to transmit the instructions of the State Legislature to Mess. Tyler & Leigh.

If, as I imagine, these reasons enter into the Constitutional question itself, it would afford us the greatest pleasure to give them publicity, and we should take it as an especial favor if you could let us have them for this purpose.

Very respy
Yr ob St
Edgar A. Poe

Littleton W. Tazewell Esqr
