The Thrill of a FIND: a new Emily Dickinson?

A quick “share” today of the news that has been making headlines lately — for I can certainly share in the excitement of the finding, even if I could never spend five years trying to authentic said find!

So a couple of quick links to pass the story on:

After spending the weekend in search of a new Smith of Suttons letter, I can say that all finds —  any single find — is important to a researcher. How wonderful that the private collector came forward and revealed this picture to the world!

NB: some after-thoughts: How wonderful to read that the public is being asked to come forth and maybe provide (for OR against) more information. Even with all the overwhelming thoughts about the sitters, the “experts” still wonder IS this Dickinson?? — compare this “search for the truth” with the publicity surrounding the “Jane Austin” portrait in Paula Byrne’s hands.
