letters from dickinson to higginson

February 1885

Dear friend-

It is long since I asked and received your consent to accept the Book, should it be, and the ratification at last comes, a pleasure I feared to hope-

Biography first convinces us of the fleeing of the Biographied-

Pass to thy Rendezvous of Light,
Pangless except for us-
Who slowly ford the Mystery
Which thou hast leaped across!
