Abstract:

The papers contain a manuscript poem "Just lost, when I was saved!" first published as "Called back" in The Independent, 1891.

The papers also contain five letters from Dickinson thanking Franklin Benjamin Sanborn for a book; requesting the Rev. Forrest Fayette Emerson to send her a scriptural passage, inquiring about the death of Helen Hunt Jackson and thanking him for a package, a requested passage and an invitation; congratulating her cousin Eugenia on her marriage; and sending brief notes of thanks and remembrance to unidentified correspondents.

Letters of Lavinia Dickinson to F.F. Emerson and his wife Harriet discuss the death of Gilbert Dickinson, Austin's illness, Emily's frail health and their friendship. A letter to Caroline Healey Dall corrects Mrs. Dall's article on Emily Dickinson in "The Boston Transcript," denying a tragedy in her life and explaining her reclusiveness. There are two brief, polite notes to friends, possibly the Emersons.

With these are two album leaves of short biographies of Emerson, Emily and Lavinia by a relative of Mrs. Emerson; 30 negative photostats of Emily Dickinson forgeries with an explanation by Joan Crane of their detection by Harold Graves, Josiah Bennett and John S. Van E. Kohn; and a letter from Thomas H. Johnson to Clifton Waller Barrett re the dating of the Sanborn letter.

The collection also contains a galley proof, 1951, of Emily Dickinson by Richard Volney Chase.
