Manuscripts and Authorized Printings:

  • Text-01 — “Beloved Physician” — April 1847, no original manuscript or fragments are known to exist (but the only excerpts of this version that are likely to have survived are presumably recorded in Text-02 and Text-03) — (Mabbott text A) (The title is based on Poe’s letter of June 1848.)
  • Text-02 — “Beloved Physician” — January 23, 1875 — recollection of fragments by Mrs. Shew, sent to J. H. Ingram. — (Mabbott text B) (By 1875, Mrs. Shew was Mrs. Houghton, and her letter to Ingram is the basis for his article, from which Text-03 is taken. Because Ingram includes all of the relevant material from her letter, and there is no other source for the poem, Text-03 is allowed to stand as representative.)
  • Text-03 — “Beloved Physician” — January 1909 — Bookman (NY) — fragments only, published by J. H. Ingram — (Mabbott text C)  (This is Mabbott’s copy-text)
