MANUSCRIPT: About 1866 (Bingham 98-3-30). It is a penciled draft on a scrap of paper.
PUBLICATION: Poems (1890), 103, titled "Beclouded." The suggested change is rejected. It is also in LH (1951), 77, among letters to Mrs. J. G. Holland, written probably about November 1866. The letter here printed that incorporates the poem is reproduced from Letters (ed. 1931), 174, where the poem is omitted from the letter and the reader referred to Poems (1890).
