letters from dickinson to austin dickinson

30 March 1852

Austin - have you plenty time before you come home, to try and match this bit of calico, and get me 10. yards of it? It is but a 12 1/2 ct. calico, but very pretty indeed, and as Vinnie has one, I think I would like to have one.

You used to like her's, I remember. Dont look, unless you have time - and dont get anything unless you can find this same. Everybody sends their love, and we're all longing to see you. Mary Warner sends her love - I saw her yesterday.

Never mind the calico, Austin, should it give you any trouble.
