letters from dickinson to bowles

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 505


PUBLICATION: L (1894) 221; LL 284; L (1931) 207.

The date is conjectured from the handwriting. The message acknowledges receipt of flowers sent perhaps, as Bowles tried annually to remember to do, during the week of the anniversary of her father's death. The flowers had arrived before his note. In 1877 the anniversary date, 16 June, fell on Saturday.
