Abstract: This edition project originated as a final assessment for the ENGL 618 – Research Methods course at Western Carolina University. For the project, we were assigned between four and ten individual manuscript pages of letters related to local literary figures. Using scanned images of the manuscripts along with access to physical copies through the special collections in Hunter Library, we were required to transcribe the content of the letters while creating annotations and making editing choices based on personal preference in presenting the text. This introduction will provide information regarding the context of the letter I was assigned including biographical material related to the literary figure involved, textual notes about the manuscript itself, and an explanation of the editorial practices that I used in preparing this document. The introduction will be followed by the transcription of the letter with annotations, and finally, this edition will be concluded with a works cited containing short annotations of each source used to prepare annotations.
