letters from dickinson to frances and louise norcross

TO: Louise and Frances Norcross


. . . Uncle told us you were too busy. Fold your little hands- the heart is the only workman we cannot excuse.

. . . Gratitude is not the mention of a tenderness, but its mute appreciation, deeper than we reach - all our LORD demands, who sizes better knows than we. Willing unto death, if only we perceive He die.
