Transcription Charleston, Augt. 7 '86

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 instantly to Yonkers, but hope to come down to the city
the next day, where I shall try to see you as soon as possible. I take my
daughter with me. I enclose you an editorial scrap from the Ch. 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.
