Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 313

MANUSCRIPT: missing.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 177; L (1931) 171; LH 72.

The conclusion has been deleted. The date, at best conjectural, is that assigned in Letters, and followed in LH. The poem beginning "Not all die early, dying young" is not a part of the letter, though in Letters it seems to conclude it, and is so printed in LH.

The friend whom the Hollands lost has not been identified. The quotation is from Matthew 6.21 (also Luke 12.34).
