Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Hiram Haines — August 19, 1836 (LTR-072)


Richmond — Va.

Dr Sir,

Herewith I send you the August number of the “Messenger” — the best number, by far, yet issued. Can you oblige me so far as to look it over and give your unbiassed opinion of its merits and demerits in the “Constellation”? We need the assistance of all our friends and count upon yourself among the foremost.

The contributions have, in most cases, the names of the authors prefixed. All after the word Editorial is my own.

If you copy any thing please take my Review of Willis’ “Inklings of Adventure” — or some other Review.

With sincere respect

Yr ob. St
Edgar A. Poe

H. Haines Esqr
