MANUSCRIPT: missing. Unpublished.
The text derives from a transcript (AC) made by Mrs. Todd in the 1890's, when she was preparing the Letter (1894). An envelope is dated: "July 1 or 2, 1881." Montague's function as ED's mailing assistant is explained in the note to letter no. 700.
There is a possible sequence in this and the two letters following. The note here enclosed for Dr. Holland may have been the question in the note to Sue that follows.
