LL 49, in part, and changed, incorporating as a final sentence one from a letter to Elizabeth Holland (L 318). Pencilled lines across first paragraph and marginalia on first leaf. "Baltimore" pencilled in top margin by Sue, who has also written "Her Day" across paragraph beginning "I rise, because the sun shines" (directly over "I brush my hair, and dress me"). Johnson omits "long" from "I had many long talks with Emmons." He supplies information regarding Sue's whereabouts: she has left New York to visit her brothers for several months in Grand Haven, Michigan. Pat took care of the Dickinsons' horse.
