letters from dickinson to john l. graves

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 137

MANUSCRIPT: HCL (G 6). Pencil. Addressed on the fold: Mr John L Graves/Present. Unpublished.

At the top ED sketched a grave, with head and foot stones. The wristlets were sent as a gift in return for the aeolian harp which Graves had made and presented ED in April (see letter no. 115). They were gaily striped and survived for many years, "shown to his children long ago, as Emily's handiwork" (letter from Miss Louise B. Graves, 12 August 1951, to the editor).
