About this Item

Ink signature reading "Frances S. Osgood/ May 10th 1841" on 1 7/8" x 4 1/2" paper affixed to a slightly larger piece of scrapbook paper. Lightly foxed. Frances Sargent "Fanny" Osgood (1811-1850) was one of the most popular American poets of her time, her verse appearing in many of the leading women's periodicals of the day. In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe (whom she had not at that point met), despite his overall criticism of American poetry, singled her out as an American poet with "a rosy future". The two began a correcpondence, which included some romantic and playful poetical exchanges, some of which he published. The two met later that year and it is believed that, despite their passionate written exchanges, their relationship remained platonic. Bookseller Inventory # X224
