Abstract: Bryant is glad that his brother employed Mr. Wiggins on the business of putting his farm in order, and hopes that his brother will continue to recommend responsible people to work for him in the future. Bryant will send copies of a book he is bringing out, and he sees that his brother is included in "Western Poets" although they left out "Little Cloud" which Bryant thinks is one of his best works. Bryant, an American poet himself, 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. He was also the editor and co-owner of New York Evening Post (1829-78).
