Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 523

MANUSCRIPT: Mather. Pencil.

PUBLICATION: Scribner's Magazine XCV (April 1934) 290.

On the outer fold, Mather wrote: "Miss E. Dickinson/Nov. 9th 1877." His first wife, Elizabeth Carmichael Mather, died, 28 October 1877. Evidently she had sent some lines by Lowell to him at the time of Mrs. Mather's death.
