MANUSCRIPT: destroyed.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 263-264; LL 274-275; L (1931) 241-242.

Vinnie was in New York visiting the Hills. Samuel Bowles wrote his son, 24 March 1871 (MS: Bowles): "The elder Dickinson has been quite feeble all winter, a sort of breaking-down with dyspepsia - & it shames him that he is hardly to be recognized in his old character." Louise Norcross has evidently written ED about the distressing condition of Eliza Dudley, with whom she is now staying. Eliza died three months later.
