FF 270. "Sue" pencilled on verso. Johnson guesses that this "note may have accompanied a small gift in acknowledgment of some attention from Sue before ED left home for her eye treatment in April." Indeed, it was written around the time that Dickinson went to Boston (February 1864) to consult an eye doctor. In late April, she returned to Boston for treatments and stayed until November. During these seven months away from home, she lived with her Norcross cousins in a boarding house in Cambridge.
