1. This postcard bears the address, "Pete Doyle, | M street South—bet 4½ & 6th | Washington, D.C." It is postmarked: "Camden | Jan | 22 | N.J.; Carrier | 23 | Jan | 8 PM."

This postcard appears to have been written one week after Whitman's January 22, 1876 letter to Doyle, as evidenced by the descriptions of Whitman's health and of the weather. [back]
