letters from dickinson to joseph lyman

Children - You speak Joseph of a young Anak and of a little Seraph. It may be that he is the Hercules & she the true Seraph - stronger he than you w[ith] your manhood - sweeter she than living woman for I bethink me of a speech uttered by one who has much credit here & everywhere for perfect vision, "Except ye all become as little children ye shall in no wise enter the Kingdom."
