MANUSCRIPT: AC. Pencil. Unpublished.
This autograph did not leave ED's desk, for she used the verso to jot the draft of the poem "'Secrets' is a daily word." The words are those of the angel wrestling with Jacob (Genesis 32.26): "And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.) (See letters no. 1035 and 1042.)
