letters from dickinson to samuel bowles (the younger)

about 1882

Dear friend,

My Mother and Sister hoped to see you, and I, to have heard the voice in the House, that recalls the strange Music of your Father's - A little Bin of Blossoms, I designed for your Breakfast, also went astray. I hope you are in strength, and that the Passengers of Peace exalt, not rend your Memory - Heaven may give them rank, it could not give them grandeur, for that they carried with themselves -

With fresh remembrance,

E. Dickinson.
