To Samuel Bowles
You compel us each to remember that when Water ceases to rise - it has commenced falling. That is the law of Flood. The last Day that I saw you was the newest and oldest of my life.
Resurrection can come but once - first - to the same House. Thank you for leading us by it.
Come always, dear friend, but refrain from going. You spoke of not liking to be forgotten. Could you, tho' you would? Treason never knew you.
