letters from dickinson to william s. jackson

Thomas Johnson's Note on Letter 1015

MANUSCRIPT: AC. Rough penciled draft.

PUBLICATION: The first two sentences are in L (1894) 426; LL 373; l (1931) 414. The remainder is in a footnote in AB 84.

This rough draft, from which the published texts derive, is written on two sheets of paper. One conjectures that Mr. Jackson replied to the letter ED wrote him in August (no. 1009), and that this is the draft of her projected answer. The phrase "one Day more I am deified" recalls a line from Browning's "The Last Ride Together."
