letters from dickinson to lucretia bullard

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 1047

MANUSCRIPT: Currier. Pencil. Unpublished, except the first two lines, which appear in the Boston Cooking-School Magazine XI (June-July) No. 1, 1906.

This, and the other two notes which follow, ED wrote probably in 1864, when she was in Cambridge undergoing treatment for her eyes. The first two acknowledge thoughtful attentions from her Aunt Lucretia. The above was written after receiving flowers, said to be wistaria; it was therefore presumably written in May. Evidently an invitation to call was declined. Mrs. Asa Bullard was Edward Dickinson's eldest sister, and the Bullards resided in Cambridge, at 24 Center Street.
