letters from dickinson to perez d. cowan

November 1879

Will it comfort my grieved cousin to know that Emily and Vinnie are among the ones this moment thinking of him with peculiar tenderness, and is his sweet wife too faint to remember to Whom her loved one is consigned?

"Come unto me" could not alarm those minute feet - how sweet to remember.

If you feel able, write a few words; if you do not - remember forgetting is a guile unknown to your faithful cousin.
