Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Evert A. Duyckinck (?) — January 30, 1846 (LTR-226)


[[. . . . .]]

Have you any personal acquaintance with Carey (John Waters)? If so will you be kind enough to note me, in brief, a few memoranda respg his personal appearance, age, residence etc? — the same about W. A. Jones. Is Herbert living in N. Y? — if so, where? Where does Hoffman live? in what street I mean. Do you know where Hoyt & Hunt live? — or Inman — or Mancur — or Gen. Morris — or O'sullivan — or Paulding — or Prof. Robinson of the Un, or Verplanck — or Tuckerman. Do you know Stephens the traveller so as to describe him? Please describe Schoolcraft & tell me where he lives — and Cheever, if you can. A very few words abt each will suffice.

Have you seen Tupper's notice of my Tales yet? if so — how is it? long or short — sweet or sour? — if you have it, please lend it me. I send this note by Mrs C. Should she not see you, can’t you contrive to step in at 85 Amity St — some time to-day or tomorrow?

Truly Yours

Jan 30.
