letters from dickinson to bowles

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 299


PUBLICATION: L (1931) 203.

It will be apparent from the next letter that Bowles returned ED's copy of the Bront‰ sisters' poems. See the letter written to ED by Thomas Niles, 31 March 1883 (no. 813b), where he too returns a copy of "Currer, Ellis & Acton Bells Poems." It may have been the same copy that she offered Bowles. If the copy survives, it has not been located.
