MANUSCRIPT: AC. Ink. Unpublished.
Although this letter speaks of winter nights, it seems to have been written earlier than the one written to Mr. Dwight on 2 January 1862 (no. 246). The Sweetsers here mentioned were probably Mr. and Mrs. Luke Sweetser, near neighbors of the Dickinsons. Mrs. Waterman was the mother of the late Mrs. Dwight. The location of the Tennyson volume is not known.
