|Herman Melville, letter to Evert A. Duyckinck |
From The New York Public Library Digital Collections
My Dear Duyckinck
I hasten to return you the tickets which you were so good as to send last evening. I should have gone--as I love music--were it not that having been shut up all day, I could not stand being shut up all the evening--so I mounted my green jacket & strolled down to the Battery to study the stars.
YoursThis 1850 letter from Herman Melville to Evert A. Duyckinck is published on page 159 in the Northwestern-Newberry edition of Melville's Correspondence.
