Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 341

MANUSCRIPT: HCL (263). Pencil. Addressed on the fold: Mr Bowles -

PUBLICATION: Poems (1955) 811.

In June 1870 Mr. and Mrs. Bowles were overnight guests of the Dickinsons. It might have been on that occasion that the poem was written, but since it remained among her own papers it was probably never delivered.
