letters from dickinson to the emersons

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 617

MANUSCRIPT: missing.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 403; LL 333; L (1931) 392.

Emerson was installed as pastor of the First Church in June 1879. Mrs. Todd placed it early among the notes to Emerson. The signature is formal, yet ED thanks him for a gift of fruit and hints that a call will be appreciated. The gift may have been for Mrs. Dickinson, now bedridden, who may have expressed the wish to have her pastor call.
