Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 748


PUBLICATION: L (1931) 421.

This scrap, measuring about two by six inches, was among Mrs. Todd's papers, but it is unlikely that ED sent it as a message for it is in her hastily jotted down handwriting which she used for first drafts, never for fair copies. Mrs. Todd says that it was sent with a flower or a poem. The rough-draft handwriting was almost illegible at times, and Mrs. Todd transcribed it: "The title sentences I began and never finished - the little wells I dug and verses filled."
