Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B124a
Dear Sue -
I  never 
shall  see  a 
Rose  in  the 
Boat  without 
beholding  you, 
and  were  you 
only  at  the  Helm, 
it  would  be 
supreme -
I  give  you  a 
Pear  that  was 
given  me    would 
that  it  were  a 
Pair,  but  Nature 
is  penurious.
I  fear  you  are 

H B124b

very  tired,  and 
every  Day  ask 
Stephen  if  you 
seem  weary -
Love  for  your 
suffering  Brother, 
whose  I  am 
each  moment, 
could  I  in  any 
way  refresh  him 
and  for  each  
in  the  loved 
Home  Tell  me 
any  service 
and  my  Heart 
is  ready -
	   Sister -
