I am using the fitdistr of MASS to get the MLE for the lambda of a Poisson distribution.
When i run the fitdistr command, i get an output that looks like - 


Couple of questions - 
1. is the MLE 0.03343 for the lambda of the given distribution then?
2. How would I calculate the variance of the MLE for the lambda?

Thanks much!
