My Dear Sir,

Enclosed I take the liberty of sending you a deed, transferring to John B. Morris Mrs. Clemm's right of dower to a lot. May I ask of you the favor to hand it to >>Mr<< Mr M., on receipt of twenty two dollars, and to forward the amount by mail, to my address in this city? Please direct simply to “Edgar A.

We all unite in the kindest regards to yourself and family,

Edgar A. Poe.

To Neilson Poe Esqr
