letters from dickinson to bowles

To Samuel Bowles
From ED

about 1860

Dear Mr. Bowles.

Thank you.

"Faith" is a fine invention
When Gentlemen can see -
But Microscopes are prudent
In an Emergency.

You spoke of the "East." I have thought about it this winter.

Dont you think you and I should be shrewder, to take the Mountain Road?

That Bareheaded life - under the grass - worries one like a Wasp.

The Rose is for Mary.
