letters from dickinson to higginson

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 396

MANUSCRIPT: BPL (Higg 92a and 90). Respectively pencil and ink.

PUBLICATION: L (1931) 291.

These are two separate notes, the first a card, the second a sheet of stationery. They seem to have been written about the same time, and with one three poems were evidently enclosed: "Not any higher stands the Grave," "Longing is like the Seed," and "Dominion lasts until obtained." It is possible that the poems went with the first, that she had no response from Higginson, so wrote the second.
