Letters (ed. 1894), 418; (ed. 1931), 407; also in LL 377. Torn at left. Two versions, one using masculine pronoun (sent to Susan), the other the feminine. Johnson conjectures that this was sent upon the death of their favorite "Cousin Willie," William Hawley Dickinson. The other version, sent to Thomas Niles of Roberts Brothers publishers (pub. No Name Series in which A Masque of Poets, ed. Helen Hunt Jackson, anonymously featured "Success is counted sweetest"), comments on Mathilde Blind's life of George Eliot.
