letters from dickinson to adelaide hills

about 1883

We are much grieved for the sufferings of the Little One, which are so artlessly undeserved, and beg her Mama to assure her of our tender sympathy. The odor of the flower might please her, as these little Beings are only "on a furlough" from Paradise.

With love for the Mama, and sorrow for her weariness.
