letters from dickinson to maria whitney

early 1878

Dear friend,

I have thought of you often since the darkness,-- though we cannot assist another's night. I have hoped you were saved. That he has received Immortality who so often conferred it, invests it with a more sudden charm....

I hope you have the power of hope, and that every bliss we know or guess hourly befalls you.

E. Dickinson
