Text: Edgar Allan Poe to William M. Gillespie — after February 26, 1845, (possibly March 6, 1845) (LTR-220b)


My Dear Gillespie,

An unlucky contretemps, connected with the getting out of the “Journal” will, I fear, detain me until after 10 to night — too late for the appointment.

If you can (this evening) see Mrs O. & make any decent apology for me, I will be greatly obliged. Any evening (except to-morrow) I shall be disengaged, and will be happy to accompany you.

In haste
Yours truly

Thursday Evening
8. O’clock.
