late 1850s

pencil, one sheet, four pages

fine note paper, gilt-edged

watermark/embossment: FNP, embossed

17.5 x 10 cm.

Poems (1891), titled "Escape." "Sue ' " on verso, as is what appears to be a "P" ("P" evidently stands for Higginson-Todd printing). Crossings of "T's" in "Without" and "expectation" span the words, and the latter is high, almost underlining "blood" in the line preceding.
