letters from dickinson to samuel bowles (the younger)

mid-August 1885

Dear friend,

May I ask a service so sacred as that you will address and mail a Note to the friend of my friend Mrs Jackson? I do not know Mr Jackson's address, and desire to write him.

That your loved Confederate and yourself are in ceaseless peace, is my happy faith -

The Sweet Peas you hallowed, stand in Carmine Sheaves. Would that you could plunder them!
