    I am writing to offer a correction to one of the claims in the article: “While Poe was not wealthy or widely known, the Jesuits knew of his literary
    brilliance and welcomed him with open arms.” While the first claim is indeed true,- the poverty of Poe was proverbial- we also know that the poet at
    the time of his residency in the Bronx was indeed famous and that his financial conditions had improved some as well. “The Raven”, the poem that brought
    him immediate success, had been published in 1845, a year before his move to Fordham village and he was also at the time the editor of the Broadway Journal, a magazine that he had bought from the previous owners and of which he was the editor, albeit for a shorter time than he would have wanted.
