Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H 310

JP 75

FP 141

OMC 47

late 1850s


watermark/embossment: X, Holyoke Co, faintly embossed

18 x 12 cm.

folded in thirds

SH 38 and CP 269-270. Pencil "X" and triangle on verso, which also sports a list, five lines long: "Remember Mister / Austins hold / [illegible] Waltzes - LABITAX / Bobolink Polka / Remember (?)." Also the "Y" in "Away" is scrawled so boldly that it goes down between "of" and "spotted" in the following line. This copy to Sue is a single stanza, as were so many of those sent directly to her, perhaps indicating her preference, that they are in process of composition, or that Dickinson is experimenting with stanzaic forms.
