letters from dickinson to henry v. emmons

about 1854


I look in my casket and miss a pearl - I fear you intend to defraud me.

Please not forget your promise to pay "mine own, with usury."

I thank you for Hypatia, and ask you what it means?

Have you heard from your friend, Miss Judkins, recently? I desire to write to her, but have not her address, and will you please tell Johnny if a little note to her would make your next too heavy.

Your Friend
