watermark/embossment: N, no symbol

13 x 10.5 cm.

folded in half

SH 96. On two-thirds sheet, torn on right and bottom. Stains, paste marks. Last six lines repeat last part of "'tis Anguish grander than Delight" (P 984), which was dated "about 1865" by Johnson, though these appear to have been sent to her earlier. Perhaps this was another poem Dickinson was developing via Sue's commentary.
