letters from dickinson to william s. jackson
I take the Hand of Mr Bowles to express my sympathy for my grieved Friend, and to ask him when all sorrow will allow, if he will tell me a very little of her Life's close? She said in a Note of a few months since, "I am absolutely well."
I next knew of her death. Excuse me for disturbing you in so deep an hour.
Bereavement is my only plea.
