LL 43, in part. "Dont" and "CFS" or "CPS" scribbled across paragaph beginning "God is good, Susie." Dickinson's handwriting noticeably different, underlinings are very wavy, calling attention to themselves. In one of the most frequently quoted passages (especially in recent feminist criticism), Johnson mistranscribed Dickinson's "This union, my dear Susie, by which two lives are one" as "These unions."
