Charleston, Augt. 7 [18]68 My dear Duyckinck
Tomorrow (8th inst) God willing I shall sail in Steamer Manhattan, for your great city. Should I arrive, in safety, as I trust in God I may, I propose to proceed instanter to Yonkers, but hope to come down to the city the next day, when I shall try to see you as soon as possible. I take my daughters with me. I enclose you an Editorial scrap from the Charleston] Courier, which you may hand to your publisher of the Broadway. You will note that the miserable devils of the Printing office have bedeviled as usual, your ancient Knickerbocker name.
Yours ever truly[,] W. Gilmore Simms.
