Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Edward H. N Patterson — July 19, 1849 (LTR-328)


Richmond July 19 —

My Dear Sir,

I left New-York six weeks ago on my way to this place, but was arrested in Philadelphia by the Cholera, from which I barely escaped with life. I have just arrived in Richmond and your letter is only this moment received — or rather your two letters with the enclosures ($,o. etc.) I have not yet read them and write now merely to let you know that they are safe. In a few days — as soon as I gather a little strength — you shall hear from me in full.

Truly Yours ever,
Edgar A Poe.

E. H. N. Patterson Esq.
