Citation/reference: The Letters of Ralph Waldo Emerson, ed. Ralph L. Rusk and Eleanor M. Tilton (New York: Columbia University Press, 1939; 1990-1995), 7:454. The Correspondence of Henry David Thoreau, ed. Walter Harding and Carl Bode (NYC: New York University Press, 1958), 44. The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau, The Correspondence, vol. 1, 1834-1848 (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 2013), 74-75.
Date: Note is dated "Thursday p.m." Rusk conjectures 1841 and a date "only a little earlier than June 21," making the closest Thursday June 17, a date when RWE was in Boston. Tilton therefore favors June 3; see Letters 7:454n.
