Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 689

MANUSCRIPT: HCL (H 59). Pencil.


The quotation in the first sentence is from 1 Peter 2.21, where it is used in a very different context: "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Fair Barbarian was published serially in Scribner's Monthly during the first quarter of 1881.
