Thomas Johnson's Note on Poem 1590

MANUSCRIPT: The worksheet draft of this poem survives (Bingham 100-4). It is written on a strip of rough brown paper in the handwriting of 1883.

PUBLICATION: LL (1924), 56. The suggested change is adopted. It probably reproduces the text of the fair copy, said to have been sent to her eight-year-old nephew Gilbert in the spring of 1883.
