Abstract: Bryant agrees to look up Dodge's article in the Evening Post but admits that he has little time for anything requiring deliberation.

Citing his "decaying memory," he encloses ten dollars and thanks Dodge for his good opinion of Bryant's remarks on the stories. Bryant, an American poet, published three collections of poetry: Poems (1821), The Fountain and Other Poems (1842), and The White-Footed Doe and Other Poems (1844); "Thanatopsis" is one of his well known poems.
