Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 516

MANUSCRIPT: BPL (Higg 25). Ink.

PUBLICATION: L (1931) 293.

ED probably first learned about the death, 2 September 1877, of Mary Channing Higginson from a newspaper report. The formality of the note may have impelled ED to write the letter that follows soon after.
