Edgar Allan Poe, Baltimore, MD., autograph letter signed to Thomas W. White, 30 May 1835
Mentions the arrest of William Gwynn Jones for theft. Wonders at delay in publication of [John P.] Kennedy's book [Horse-Shoe Robinson]: apologizes for his critique of it. Expresses scorn for [Laughton Osborn's] Confessions of a Poet and defends his review of it. Suggest notice of the [Southern Literary] Messenger appear in the American rather than in the Republican.
