letters from dickinson to the jamesons

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 933

MANUSCRIPT: missing. The text is from a transcript in the Jones Library made during the 1930's when the autograph (said to be in ink) was offered for sale.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 401; L (1931) 390.

Jameson was postmaster in Amherst from December 1876 until March 1885. The phrasing of this birthday greeting, formal yet cordial, leads one to conjecture that the Jamesons had been Amherst residents for some time. Until the manuscript is located, it can be assigned no exact date.
