letters from dickinson to theodore holland

summer 1884

Dear Sir.

Your request to "remain sincerely" mine demands investigation, and if after your synopsis of your career all should seem correct, I am tersely your's -

I shall try to wear the unmerited honor with becoming volume -

Commend me to your Kindred, for whom although a Stranger, I entertain esteem -

I approve the Paint - a study of the Soudan, I take it, but the Scripture assures us our Hearts are all Dongola.

E. Dickinson -
