Addressed To?: Charlotte Symonds
Importance?: Contrived learning the Oenone (a poem) with Mr. John Smith & considered as one of "some favourite pieces of poetry"
Owned?: Most likely
Evidence: "All is gone & the weather is wet & muggy so that when I walked out with Mr [John] Smith yesterday we waded through fields ancle deep in mud & mire & very unlike the scenes we were reciting at the opening of Oenone."
Frequency Mentioned: Twice; 1:93 (30) "I went out yesterday for a little walk with Mr [John] Smith. I still contrive learning the Oenone.' It does not occupy more than ½ an hour a week for we never say more than 5 new lines a time. I think it will be such a nice thing when I grow up & have not perhaps so much time as I have now to know some favourite pieces of poetry."
