Thomas Johnson's Note on Poem 163

MANUSCRIPT: About 1860, in packet 37 (H 201a).

PUBLICATION: This poem, which may have accompanied the gift of a rose, evidently was sent to Dr. and Mrs. Holland. The copy sent to them does not survive. It is in Letters (ed. 1894), 178-179; (ed. 1931), 172; also LL (1924), 261-262. It is reprinted from Letters and included in LH (1951), 78. There are no textual differences between the packet copy and the copy to the Hollands.
