Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B26

late 1870s

heavy, stylized pencil

watermark/embossment: T, Weston's Linen 1876

20 x 12.5 cm.

multiple folds

LL 62, prose part only. Torn at left. "Susan - " on verso. Pinholes, paste marks. About this document Johnson writes as if the prose part is clearly distinguishable from the poetry, and his transcription is a perfect example of how he imposes print conventions and erases Dickinson's blending of genres to create a new form.
