  • The Autograph Letter Collection of Mildred Barnes Bliss — Dumbarton Oaks
    collection including the manuscript of an Emily Dickinson poem a musical note from Richard Strauss and letters from William Wordsworth Charlotte Brontë and Charles Dickens among many others The autograph letter collection is a miscellany there is no single point of focus and the letters range widely in substance Nevertheless taken together the letters speak to the tastes and beliefs of the early twentieth century and to the question of who was thought to be a sufficiently important writer artist or thinker There are some familiar names but others are now fairly obscure And while some of the correspondence is quite brief Victor Hugo s note is just a few words other letters are substantial enough to provide generous insight into the personalities of their authors as in the case of John Ruskin s to Charles Eliot Norton The middle ages are to me the only ages or Arthur Henry Hallam s to Emily Tennyson Document Actions Print this Share Navigation Library Archives Library Rare Book Collection History of the Collections Mission Rare Book Collection Digital Camera Use Policy Rare Book Digitization Project The Autograph Letter Collection of Mildred Barnes Bliss William Makepeace Thackeray to Harriet Leslie February 27 1860
