letters from dickinson to catherine sweetser

To Mrs. Joseph A. Sweetser
From ED

about 1883

Dear Aunt-

I have found and give it in love, but reluctant to entrust anything so sacred to my Father as my Grandfather's Bible to a public Messenger, will wait till Mr. Howard comes, whom Mrs. Nellies tells us is due this week - Thank you for loving my Father and Mother - I hope they are with the Source of Love - You did not tell me of your Health - I trust because confirmed - Thank you too for sorrow, the one you truly knew, with Vinnie's affection, in haste and fondness,

Emily -
