letters from dickinson to henry v. emmons

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 162

MANUSCRIPT: HCL (E 12). Pencil. Dated: Tuesday morn.


Kingsley's Hypatia was published in 1853. Eliza Maria Judkins had taught drawing, painting, and penmanship at Amherst Academy in 1841-1842, and had probably been one of ED's teachers. The first sentence of the letter may be a reminder that Emmons still has not returned the book which ED had lent him (see letter no. 150). Johnny Beston was a youthful handyman.
