late 1850s

ink, on two-thirds of carefully torn sheet

watermark/embossment: N, no symbol

13 x 13.3 cm.

CP (1924), 297-298. Manuscript is marked with "X" and "E." The "hungry Vulture" resonates with the image of "Condor Kate" in an early 1860s letter to Kate Anthon (L 222), who remained a lifelong friend of Susan. In summer 1996, a 1909 postcard of Main Street in Amherst showing the front fence of the Evergreens that had been sent by Susan to Kate was discovered.
