letters from dickinson to james d. clark

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 788


PUBLICATION: L (1894) 353-354, with facsimile reproduction of the last page; LL 354; L (1931) 347.

This replies to a letter of condolence written by Clark in November which evidently enclosed something written by Wordsworth. The sentence comparing a letter to immortality ED had used in almost identical phrase in 1869, in a letter to Higginson (see no. 330). The quotation is from Mark 4.25.
