Text: Edgar Allan Poe to Maria Clemm — July 14, 1849 (LTR-325)

Near Richmond

The weather is awfully hot, and, besides all this, I am so homesick I donte know what to do. I never wanted to see any one half so bad as I want to see my own darling mother. It seems to me that I would make any sacrifice to hold you by the hand once more, and get you to cheer me up, for I am terribly depressed. I do not chink that any circumstances will ever tempt me to leave you again. When I am with you I can bear anything, but when I am away from you I am too miserable to live.
