Funding: Digitization was made possible by a lead gift from The Polonsky Foundation.
Ownership: W. T. H. Howe
Content: 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.
