A note from Vinnie to Mrs. Boltwood, dated 8 March 1880, expresses sympathy for an accident to her son, who had been thrown from a carriage. This note may have been written then. Howells's Undiscovered Country was published serially in Scribner's Monthly, beginning in January. This note, accompanying a pie, acknowledges the gift of butter.
