letters from dickinson to maria whitney

spring 1885

Dear friend

I was much quickened toward you and all Celestial things to read (see) that the Life of our loved Mr Bowles would be with us in Autumn, and how fitting (sweet) that his and George Eliots should be given so near -- (should be chosen so near And how strong that his and George Eliots are in the same year)

On his arriving from California he told us the Highwayman did not say your money or your life, but have you read Daniel Deronda -- That wise and tender Book I hope you have seen -- It is full of sad (high) nourishment --
