Excluded MSS

Although Bingham includes A 881 in A Revelation, I have not included it here for several reasons. First, though it may exist, I have been unable to locate a manuscript at Amherst College that contains both “Were Departure Separation . . .” and “Emerging from an Abyss and entering it again –.” Second, the handwriting of A 881 is unlike the handwriting of the fair copy drafts included here and seems to belong to an earlier period. Finally, this manuscript is signed “Emily” and so belongs to another category of her work.
