Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 191

MANUSCRIPT: HCL (Haven 1). Ink. Addressed on the fold: Mrs. Haven./Present.

PUBLICATION: Indiana Quarterly for Bookmen I (1945) 116; Home 403.

The Hampshire and Franklin Express announced on 9 June 1858 that Professor Haven had accepted an appointment to the faculty of the Congregational Seminary in Chicago. His absence from Amherst, here implied, may have been on business connected with the change. ED's interest in De Quincey appears here for the first time. De Quincey's only novel, Klosterheim, had been written some years before (1832). Like the letter preceding, this refers to the concern felt about Mrs. Dickinson's health.
