letters from dickinson to mary ingersoll cooper

late 1882

Dear friend -

Thank you for the very sweet Message which you sent me in November, though I did not reply till Today -

The Biography of the Blossom might perhaps endear it -

It was sent to me by your Mother, after the Village Fire - and "Mother," to me, is so sacred a Name, I take even that of the "Seraphim" with less hallowed significance -

E - Dickinson -
with love -
