letters from dickinson to elizabeth dickinson currier

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 188


PUBLICATION: L (1894) 422, in part; Bachelor of Arts, May 1895, in part; L (1931) 410, in part; NEQ XXVIII (1955) 293 n, in part.

The date is conjectured from the handwriting. A fragment of violet is still affixed to the sheet. Though there is no certainty that ED's aunt Elizabeth Dickinson (but eight years older than ED) was the recipient of the letter, she is the only person ED is known to have called Libbie (see letter no. 897 and 1041).
