Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 591

MANUSCRIPT: missing.

PUBLICATION: L (1894) 339; LL 319-320; L (1931) 328-329.

Mrs. Todd dated the letter 1879. Quite possibly it was written at about the same time as the letter preceding. Mrs. Todd says in a footnote that following the letter is the poem beginning "We knew not that we were to live" (see letter no.575).
