Whitman and Rolleston: A Correspondence

By Horst Frenz | Go to book overview

XXVII
WHITMAN TO ROLLESTON

Whitman has commented in red ink at the top of this draft: "Aug. 20 '84 Sent Rolleston 28 Terrassen Ufer Dresden Saxony." Corrections in the draft, which is written in black ink, are made in pencil.

[ August 20, 1884.]

Two or three little matters I will write to you about. How is the publication of the German version getting on? My guess would be that when fairly afloat it might have quite as much sale here in the United States--as in Germany--perhaps more. Would of course require a little while to get bruited about-- but then I think quite probable a steady demand would set in. Two or three central book jobbing houses should be fixed upon, one in New York, one in Chicago & one in San Francisco--

With an eye to this I would like early copies sent to

Wm Sloane Kennedy,1 Belmont, Mass.

J L & J B Gilder.2 Critic office, 18 Astor Place New York City
