Text: Edgar Allan Poe to John Priestley — January 20, 1849 (LTR-300)


Fordham, Saturday, January 20

My Dear Sir

May I trouble you to hand the accompanying brief article to Mr. Whelpley and see if he can give me $10 for it? About four years ago, I think, I wrote a paper on “The American Drama” for your review. It was printed anonymously — my name was not given in the index. The criticism referred chiefly to Willis's “Tortesa” and Longfellow's “Spanish Student.” Could you procure me the number containing it?

Truly your friend,
Edgar Allan Poe
