Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 439

MANUSCRIPT: HCL (H 35). Pencil.


The date is conjectured from the handwriting. The book may have been Dr. Holland's novel Sevenoaks, published in 1875, but it is not at present among the Dickinson books. The scripture reference is to Psalms 116.12 "What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me?"
