letters from dickinson to samuel bowles (the younger)

about 1883

To ask of each that gathered Life, Oh, where did it grow, is intuitive.

That you have answered this Prince Question to your own delight, is joy to us all.

Lad of Athens, faithful be
To Thyself,
And Mystery -
All the rest is Perjury -

Please say with my tenderness to your Mother, I shall soon write her.

E. Dickinson -
