letters from dickinson to abigail cooper

about 1881

Dear friend,

The thoughtfulness was picturesque and the glimpse delightful -

The Residence of Vinnie's friends could but be fair, to me.

And will you in exchange, accept a View of my House, which Nature painted White, without consulting me - but Nature is "old-fashioned," perhaps a Puritan -

E- Dickinson -
