Funding: Digitization was made possible by a lead gift from The Polonsky Foundation.
Date: Another copy was enclosed with his letter to To James T. Fields, 7 January 1875: "My Dear Fields: I send this original rough draft just as it was when I laid the pen down to welcome you two hours ago." (See Huntington Library, California, UCCL 01175)
Ownership: Berg.
Content: This copy differs from version included in letter to Fields in lineation and format but shows almost exactly the same wording, cancelled alternatives and punctuation, which may indicate it was a copy SLC made for himself toward future publication.
