letters from dickinson to the jenkins family

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 717


PUBLICATION: L (1894) 370; LL 280; FN 53; L (1931) 361.

The date conjectured from the handwriting, is confirmed by a report in the Amherst Record for 5 August 1881: "Rev. J.L. Jenkins and family are stopping in town, the guests of W.A. Dickinson." MacGregor was twelve years old. This note was evidently sent at that time, as was the following note to Sally Jenkins, aged fifteen.
