Funding: Digitization was made possible by a lead gift from The Polonsky Foundation.
Ownership: W. T. H. Howe
Content: Based on non-authorial manuscript evidence, Rusk surmised that this note was an afterthought to a letter of Feb. 15, 1839. However Hudspeth gives "Fall 1845" based on Mrs. Brown's moving into the house mentioned in September 1845 (1:277).
