Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 655

MANUSCRIPT: HCL (L 28). Pencil.


The date is conjectured from the handwriting. This note probably follows the preceding, for the reference in the first sentence is to sweet sultans, one of ED's garden flowers, surviving after a cold snap. The scripture allusion is to Matthew 18.20: "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."
