letters from dickinson to higginson

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 621

MANUSCRIPT: BPL (Higg 104). Pencil.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 327; LL 306; L (1931) 309.

The handwriting is that of 1879. The two datable letters written during the year are in February and December (nos. 593 and 622). This one evidently was written to remind Higginson that a reply to her February letter was overdue. For the reference to him as the friend who had saved her life, see the letter she wrote him ten years earlier (no. 330). For a similar concluding sentence, see letter no. 537.
