MANUSCRIPTS: There are three, all written about 1860. That reproduced above (Bingham) is incorporated in a letter to Samuel Bowles. The other two are both in packets. That in packet 14 (H 72g) is without italics in line 3. That in packet 37 (H 201e) italicizes both words, but does not put "Faith" in quotes. In both packet copies line 2 reads: "For Gentlemen who see," the first concluding with an exclamation point, the second with a dash.
PUBLICATION: Poems (1891), 53. The text, without italics, follows that of the packet copies. The version to Bowles is in Letters (ed. 1894), 200; (ed. 1931), 191; also LL (1924), 227.
