Walt Whitman to Pete Doyle

Brooklyn, Saturday afternoon, July 30, 1870

Dear Pete,

Well here I am home again with my mother, writing to you from Brooklyn once more. We parted there, you know, at the corner of 7th St. Tuesday night.
Pete there was something in that hour from 10 to 11 o'clock (parting though it was) that has left me pleasure and comfort for good – I never dreamed that you made so much of having me with you, nor that you could feel so downcast at losing me. I
foolishly thought it was all on the other side.

But all I will say further on the subject is, I now see clearly, that was all wrong. . . .             
Love to you, dear Pete – and I won't be so long again writing to my darling boy.

Walt
