  • Content: A manuscript which contains lines similar to those found at the beginning of "Additional Note, 1887, to English Edition 'Specimen Days.'" The note was originally titled "Additional Note. Written 1887 for the English Edition " and included in the second (English) edition of Specimen Days . The note would later be reprinted in Complete Prose Works . The date on the manuscript, however, indicates that it was written in 1884 and likely intended for inclusion in a proposed two-volume edition of poetry and prose to be published in 1884. The edition never materialized. On the reverse of the manuscript is a note by William Sloane Kennedy.
