letters from dickinson to frances and louise norcross


TO: Louise Norcross

Dear Loo,

Thank you, with love, for the kindness; it would be very sweet to claim if we needed it, but we are quite strong, and mother well as usual, and Vinnie spectacular as Disraeli and sincere as Gladstone, - was only sighing in fun. When she sighs in earnest, Emily's throne will tremble, and she will need both Loo and Fanny; but Vinnie "still prevails." When one or all of us are lain on "Marian Erle's dim pallet," so cool that she deplored t live because that she must leave it, Loo and the ferns, and Fanny and her fan shall supplement the angels, if they have not already joined them.
