[     ] Square brackets indicate material inserted by editors
<     > Angle brackets denote an irregularity in the manuscript. The absence of a note indicates that the irregularity is caused by a seal tear, hole, or physical deterioration and that the information within the brackets is a conjectural reconstruction
<…> Angle brackets enclosing ellipsis show an actual omission caused by a defect or physical irregularity in the manuscript. Except in the case of text lost through seal tears, holes, etc., the nature of the irregularity is indicated by a note. This symbol appears on a line by itself if lost text exceeds half a line
<★★★> Angle brackets enclosing triple stars indicate the lack of a beginning or end of a letter
|     | Vertical bars are used before and after a word which, though not physically obliterated, is a word of uncertain transcription
Ellipses indicate omissions from quoted material in notes and supporting documents, but in the actual texts of the Brownings’ correspondence they merely reproduce the writers’ style of punctuation
