letters from dickinson to austin dickinson

Boston, 8 September 1851

You are very thoughtful Austin to make so many plans for our pleasure and happiness, and yet it is so hot we hardly feel like going out. We had a very pleasant evening, and will tell you something when you come. Will you come after school this morning? It seems a great while since we've seen you. We are very warm indeed, but quite happy - we will be very much so if you will be sure to come. Vinnie and I like your friend very much.

You must'nt feel disappointed for yourself or for us, because it is so hot that we dont think we can come - it will be cooler sometime. Vinnie is comfortable - did you rest well last night, and have a nice breakfast this morning.

Sure to come!


Fanny sends her love
