letters from dickinson to sarah tuckerman

1 April 1884

Be encouraged, sweet friend!

How cruel we did not know! But the Battles of those we love are often unseen -- "If thou had'st been here," Mary said, "our Brother had not died --" Hanging my Head and my Heart with it, that you sorrowed alone,

Late, but lovingly,

Emily --
