  • Bishop’s revised draft of “Gallery Note” reflects her efforts to capture a geologically precise analogy for Wehr’s artwork. (VC 53.8; Courtesy of Vassar College; this note was published as “Wesley Wehr” in Pr352-353 and in PPL469-70; in the archival note, Bishop wrote lonelinesses, which has been incorrectly transcribed as loneliness in both published versions.)
