Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 967

MANUSCRIPT: NYPL (Berg collection). Pencil.

PUBLICATION: Revelation 68.

Kimball was executor of Judge Lord's estate. Perhaps Lord bequeathed something to ED. (He did not return the letters she had written to him.) This and the letter which follows are in the same collection. With them is an enveloped addressed in ink by ED: Benjamin Kimball/8. Congress St./Boston./Mass. Postmarked: Palmer Mass Feb 20 85. The quoted lines are from Bryant's June:

Whose part, in all the pomp that fills
The circuit of the summer hills,
Is that his grave is green.
