letters from dickinson to the jamesons

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 863

MANUSCRIPT: missing. Unpublished. The text derives from a transcript in the Jones Library purportedly made "From Goodspeed's letter of September 27, 1932."

Annie Jameson was a playmate of young Gilbert Dickinson. Her gift of grapes is acknowledged by this note and a "bit of cake." The letter was written after Mrs. Dickinson's death but, from the tone, probably before the death of Gilbert in October. Perhaps the acquaintance with Mrs. Jameson began through the children. If so, it explains the formality of the later note to the mother (no. 933) in spite of intervening notes written to Annie and her brother Arthur.
