15a

March (?)

Mrs. F. Allan (Richmond, VA) to Poe (en route to Boston, MA?) (two letters). Cited by Whitty [1911], p. xxx; and Phillips, 1:294. Phillips describes these as freeing “him [Poe] from all blame in the Allan family [sic] disturbing affairs.” Poe apparently kept both letters, at some point giving them to his wife, Virginia. After her death in 1847, they supposedly passed to Poe’s cousin, Elizabeth R. Herring (by then, Mrs. Edmund Smith). Phillips also implies letters from Poe to Mrs. F. Allan, but it is little more than a reasonable speculation on her part. Unfortunately, Phillips also repeats a story that Poe “wrote his foster-mother when he was in Europe,” which may be dismissed along with the long discredited notion that Poe ran off to Europe in 1827. (CL08-15a.)

Poe’s note includes a line that reads “Dr Madam,” suggesting a letter in reply to the review, which would have been quite typical for Poe. See L [1948], 1:106. Mrs. Hale’s son, David E. Hale, was at West Point with Poe. (CL08-53a.)

Poe (Baltimore, MD) to Miss K. Bleakley (Baltimore, MD). Cited by Phillips, 1:421-423, where she notes that Poe wrote Miss Kate Bleakley “verses and letters.” Her father, Matthew Bleakley, was the proprietor of the Armistead Hotel, “on ‘short Swan Street,’ between Market Space and Jones Falls.” Miss Bleakley was later married, twice (first to Mr. W. B. Paine and then Mr. Henderson). All of these papers were apparently burned after the death of Miss Bleakley’s daughter, Annie Paine, following an outbreak of yellow fever in New Orleans, LA. Phillips gives her source as an article in the NY Herald (14 June 1903). (CL08-65a.)

1832

70a

1832 (?)

There are no cited or specifically identifiable letters for this period, although Whitty [1911] says “An old printer told me that he carried letters for Poe from Baltimore to Richmond prior to 1835” (p. xxxv). Whitty states that Poe learned through this correspondence that John Allan was ill, and arranged a trip to Richmond about June 1832 in hope of a reconciliation. Whitty further suggests that this correspondence was with Miss Valentine (Mrs. F. Allan’s sister) and “the old Allan servants.”Allen repeats part of this story, saying “A printer by the name of Askew is known to have carried letters back and forth for Poe from Richmond” (Allen, p. 1:337, where he gives his source as “information given to the author in Richmond, July, 1925”). (CL08-70a.)

70b

Summer (?)

Poe (Baltimore, MD) to Miss M. Starr (Exeter St., Baltimore, MD). Cited in A. Van Cleef, “Poe’s Mary,” Harper’s Monthly (March 1889, 78:638): “After the quarrel I have just told you about I ... returned his letters unopened. My mother also forbade him the house. He sent me a letter by Virginia. I sent it back unopened. He wrote again, and I opened the letter. He addressed me formally as Miss —, and upbraided me in satiric terms for my heartless, unforgiving disposition.” TOM [Poems] 1:232 accepts the story as “basically true but probably overcolored,” although he dates the romance as 1834. Mary Starr is sometimes referred to as Mary Devereaux, using the last name of her Baltimore uncle, James Devereaux, as “Poe’s Mary,” or simply as “Baltimore Mary.” (CL08-70b.)

70c

Summer (?)
