letters from dickinson to henry v. emmons

early January 1854

Cousin John & Mr Emmons please not regret the little mishap of last evening, for Vinnie and I quite forgot Mr Saxe, in our delightful ride, and were only disappointed lest you should think us so.

Will you please receive these blossoms - I would love to make two garlands for certain friends of mine, if the summer were here, and till she comes, perhaps one little cluster will express the wish to both. Please share it together, and come in for an evening as soon as college duties are willing you should do.

Your friends, Emilie

and Vinnie -
