letters from dickinson to higginson

November 1880

Dear friend,

You were once so kind as to say you would advise me-Could I ask it now-

I have promised three Hymns to a charity, but without your approval could not give them-

They are short and I could write them quite plainly, and if you felt it convenient to tell me if they were faithful, I should be very grateful, though if public cares too far fatigue you, please deny

Your Scholar-
