Gertrude M. Graves wrote "A Cousin's Memories of Emily Dickinson," Boston Sunday Globe, 12 January 1930, telling how Bowles once called upstairs to ED: "Emily, you wretch! No more of this nonsense. I've traveled all the way from Springfield to see you. Come down at once." She is said to have complied and never have been more witty. The conclusion to this letter suggests that Bowles had said "You damned rascal."
