letters from dickinson to otis phillips lord

about 1883

I feel like wasting my Cheek on your Hand tonight - Will you accept (approve) the squander - Lay up Treasures immediately - that's the best Anodyne for moth and Rust and the thief whom the Bible knew enough of Banking to suspect would break in and steal

night is my favorite Day - I love silence so - I dont mean halt (stop) of sound - but ones that talk of nought all day mistaking it for [racy?] - Forgive you
