letters from dickinson to frances and louise norcross

March 1873?

TO: Louise and Frances Norcross

. . . I open my window, and it fills the chamber with white dirt. I think God must be dusting; and the wind blows so I expect to read in The Republican "Cautionary signals for Amherst," or, "No ships ventured out from Phoenix Row." . . . Life is so rotatory that the wilderness falls to each, sometime. It is safe to remember that. . . .
