letters from dickinson to adelaide dole

about 1879

Dear friend,

Had I known of Vinnie's inquiry, I should have dispelled it -

Dennis' constancy here - is impregnable, but obloquy out of sight is one of Vinnie's spectres - I dont remember meeting "the Lines," though they fall like Tennyson - The Parents of Beauty are seldom known - I hope you may fast grow stronger - and only recall the Sickness, as a bad Dream - Night's capacity varies, but Morning, is inevitable -

E. Dickinson -
