TO UNKNOWNON OR BEFORE 11 OCTOBER 1828 ‧ NEW YORK

Unlocated. Melville began his letter-writing career by the age of nine with what appears to have been a writing exercise, as he indicates in "the third letter that I ever wrote," dated 11 October 1828, to his maternal grandmother, Catherine Van Schaick Gansevoort, below. His first letter may have been this unlocated one, presumably also to a relative, or it may have been the one to his aunt Lucy Melvill, just below. Davis-Gilman Unlocated 273.
