letters from dickinson to cornelia sweetser

spring 1878

Sweet Mrs Nellie comes with the Robins.

Would she remain with the Robins April would need no Codicil, but Mrs Nellie has Wings -

Hours - have Wings -

Riches - have Wings -

Wings are a mournful perquisite -

A Society for the Suppression of Wings would protect us all.
