To Emily Dickinson
I suppose by this time you have seen the Masque of Poets. I hope you have not regretted giving me that choice bit of verse for it. I was pleased to see that it had in a manner, a special place, being chosen to end the first part of the volume, - on the whole, the volume is a disappointment to me. Still I think it has much interest for all literary people. I confess myself quite unable to conjecture the authorship of most of the poems.
Colorado is as lovely as ever: - our mountains are white with snow now, but there is no snow in the town: at noon one can have windows open, if the fires blaze well on the hearths. What would you think of that in N. England.
I am very glad that I saw you this autumn: also that you saw my husband and liked him, as I perceived that you did -
Thank you once more for the verses.
