Text: Edgar Allan Poe to George F. Barstow and Fayette Jewett — April 28, 1846 (LTR-228b)


April 28, 1846


Will you be so kind as to express to the Societies of the University of Vermont, my profound sense of the honor they have done me, and at the same time my deep regret that a multiplicity of engagements, with serious and, I fear, permanent ill health, will not permit me to avail myself of their flattering invitation?

Most respectfully, Gentlemen,
Edgar A Poe.

To George F. Barstow Esqr
Fayette Jewett Esqr.



The gentlemen addressed were members of a literary society at the University of Vermont in Burlington.
