letters from dickinson to martha gilbert smith

summer 1877

Dear Mattie -

I remember you were peculiarly interested in this little flower - As it never blossoms except in Winter, I think it became on your account.

I have talked with your little Girl, whose persistent resemblance to you is sweet to those who love you -

Love for yourself, Mattie, and tenderness for Sue -
