letters from dickinson to perez d. cowan

late October 1870

Dear Peter

It is indeed sweet news.

I am proud of your happiness. To Peter and Peter's, let me give both Hands. Delight has no Competitor, so it is always most.

"Maggie" is a warm name. I shall like to take it. Home is the definition of God.
