Godkin, 130 Nassau st. & see if you can get me two or three copies of a new paper, the London Chronicle, with a piece about Leaves of Grass &c. I think it must be the paper for June 22-(though it may be June 29-or June 15)-but you must look & see-Godkin is the American agent.
I am well as usual-work in the same office-all goes an the same in the office & generally. Mother has moved to ,1194 Atlantic street-(not av.)-opposite Hamilton st. You take Fulton av. cars. Ellen O'Connor is going far the summer to coast of Rhode Island-her little girl Jenny is afflicted with bad swellings &c of joints-appears to be scrofulous- William O'Connor is well-
How are you all? Write me a good long letter-tell me all the news- all about the girls, & Mr. Arnold-& the last from Arthur, & every thing-
So good bye for this time-I send you my love, dear friend, & Same to the dear girls-& to all.
