letters from dickinson to the montagues

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 700

MANUSCRIPT: missing.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 405; L (1931) 395.

This and the five letters which follow, all written to George Montagues, are grouped by Mrs. Todd and dated: 1881? They are similarly grouped here, for they probably were written during this period of years when George Montague was addressing ED's letters for her, and wrapping and mailing her parcels. A note from him is preserved among ED's papers (AC) because she used the back of it to set down a draft of "How happy is the little stone." It reads:

Cousin Emily will please forgive me, - I have made a blemish and a mistake on two of her envelopes, & have substituted two of mine, which I am sorry to say, are not quite so nice. If they will do, I shall be glad.

Cousin G.
