Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 213

MANUSCRIPT: AC. Ink. Dated: Amherst.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 193-195, in part; LL 205-206, in part; L (1931) 184-185, in part.

ED seems to be acknowledging as a Christmas remembrance Theodore Parker's The Two Christmas Celebrations (1859), a volume which does not survive. By saying "make lamplighter of me," she means a spill, a roll of paper for lighting a lamp.
