Pages That Need Transcription
214 Columbus Av, Boston, Aug 16, 1888.
I write to inquire whether a poem I sent you from the West has been accepted. I think I called it "The Inalienable Gift."
As I have not heard from it, it has occurred to me that some message regarding it may have been sent to me at Chicago, and lost in the mails with which thieves have been making havoc there.
If it is not to be used,
will you return it to me either here or at Beverly, Mass.?
If printed, I should be glad to have a copy of the paper containing it sent me, at Beverly, with check for payment. My letters are always forwarded to me, either from there, or from the accompanying address.
Truly yours, Lucy Larcom
