letters from dickinson to samuel bowles (the younger)

August 1885

Dear friend,

I did not know. God bless you indeed!

Extend to that small Hand my own "Right Hand of Fellowship" and guide the Woman of your Heart softly to my own.

I give "his Angels Charge -" Well remembered Angels, whose absence, only, dims our Eyes. The Magnanimity I asked, you how freely gave!

If ever of any act of mine you should be in need, let me reply with the Laureate, "Speak that I live to hear!"


E. Dickinson.
