Thomas Johnson's Note on Poem 1394

MANUSCRIPT: The lines are incorporated in a letter (BPL Higg 69) written to T. W. Higginson about June 1877. Knowing that Mrs. Higginson is seriously ill (she died in September), ED expresses the hope she may be better and introduces the poem with the thought:

I remember her with my Blossoms and wish they were her's.

PUBLICATION: Among the letters to Higginson in Letters (ed. 1894), 318; (ed. 1931), 292; also LL (1924), 292.
