Found a gold mine of info about George Lippard’s friend Edgar Allan Poe in Hervey Allan’s book “Israfel”, e.g. p-651. “He (Poe) remained in (Phila, 1849) in the care of his friends C. Chauncey Burr and George Lippard…. The latter (G. L.) called upon Poe’s old employers for help as did G. Graham…the old friends in Philadelphia understood it all too well and helped when they could.”
“Burr now purchased a steam boat ticket for Poe as far as Baltimore, and provided another $10 by Graham and Peterson. And he (Poe) set out for Richmond with his carpet bag that had been lost for 10 days. He was accompanied to the docks by the faithful Burr. It was Friday, 13th” (July).
