Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Edward L. Carey — May 31, 1844 (LTR-176a)


May 31.rst 44.

My Dear Sir,

I would take it as a very great favor if you could let me see the proof of my tale, “The Purloined Letter,” which will be in the next “Gift”. I am not, usually, solicitous about proofs; but, in this instance, the MS. had many interlineations and erasures, which may render my seeing one, necessary. Please send it, per “Harnden's Express” to care of “Wm. H. Graham, Tribune Office, N. York.” I will return it promptly.

Yours very resply
Edgar A Poe

E. L. Carey Esqre

P.S.) Perhaps it would be better merely to send the proof to “Office of Graham's Magazine” here in Phila: with directions to forward it to me, here.
