letters from dickinson to higginson

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 513

MANUSCRIPT: BPL (Higg 73). Ink.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 320, in part; LL 293-294, in part; L (1931) 294-295, entire. The poems, in the order ED names them, were: "It sounded as if the Streets were running," "She laid her docile Crescent down," "I have no Life but this," and "After all Birds have been investigated and laid aside." Higginson had evidently mentioned in the letter to which this replies that he was writing an article on Turgenev (1818-1883); his diary (HCL) records that he sent it to the Atlantic Monthly on 7 August, but it was never published. The Dresden friend has not been identified.
