Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 126

MANUSCRIPT: A.C. Pencil. Dated: Thursday morning. Envelope franked and addressed by Edward Dickinson. Postmarked: Amherst Ms June 9. An attempt has been made throughout to erase or alter the name "Sue."


In celebration of the opening of the Amherst and Belchertown Railroad, an excursion was arranged at the joint of an invitation of the railroad and the New London, Willimantic and Palmer line, to bring the people of New London by special train to Amherst. Austin's worry seems to have to do with people's remarks about him and Sue. On his concern about his hair, see letters no. 122 and 132.
