letters from dickinson to henry v. emmons

autumn 1853

I send you the book with pleasure, for it has given me happiness, and I love to have it busy, imparting delight to others.

Thank you for the beautiful note - It is too full of poesy for a Saturday morning's reply, but I will not forget it, nor shall it fade as the leaves, tho' like them gold and crimson -

I send a note for your friend - Please remember me to her, with a sincere affection -

I am happy that she is with you - I have not read the book of which you speak - I will be happy to whenever agreable [sic] to you - and please give me an opportunity to see you "sirrah" very soon -

Your friend

Emilie E. Dickinson
