letters from dickinson to fanny boltwood

March 1880?

The Spring of which dear Mrs Boltwood speaks, is not so brave as herself, and should bring her of right, it's first flower.

Though a Pie is far from a flower, Mr Howells implies in his "Undiscovered Country," that "our relation to Pie" will unfold in proportion to finer relations.

With sweet thoughts from us all, and thanks for the charming Butter, and the gallant notes,

Very faithfully,
