  • Content: Heavily corrected draft of a phrase that appears at the end of the "Prefatory Note" section of "Notes (such as they are) founded on Elias Hicks," an essay first published in November Boughs (1888) and later reprinted in Complete Prose Works (1891–1892). The draft is written on what was apparently a book wrapper. The printed text on the inside of the wrapper is from the Seventh Annual Report of the Dante Society, which was dated May 15, 1888.
