Capitalization, punctuation, ... i.e. edits[edit]

It is known that most editions of Emily Dickinson's poems were heavily edited by publishers, editors, and others. Consequentially, in modern times her poems appear in edited and unedited forms. Wikisource is no exception. I think that wikisource should store only the contents of the original manuscripts, or at least show the different forms side by side. But the purpose of multiple versions would, it seems to me, be primarily to show the differences between the edited and unedited versions. However, this purpose could easily be satisfied by creating a wikipedia article and/or (if necessary) by expanding the edited version section of Dickinson's Wikipedia article.

Poem numbering[edit]

Where do the numbers for the poems come from, and where should I look if I find a poem without a number? The specific poems I'm concerned with at the moment are below, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were more, as I found these poems while linking unlinked pages.
