Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 215

MANUSCRIPT: destroyed.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 230-231; LL 208-209; L (1931) 216: where it is dated March 1859.

The letter could not have been written in March 1859, since in that year Vinnie had gone to stay with Mrs. Norcross in February (see letter no. 200). In 1860 Vinnie left home in March, and remained with the Norcross family for some weeks (see letter no. 217). The plover is so named because it was said to appear during the rainy season.
