Emily Dickinson's Correspondences
Correspondence with Susan Dickinson

H B77
Dear  Sue -
	Your  little 
mental  gallantries 
are  sweet  as 
Chivalry, which 
is  to  me  a 
shining  Word 
though  I  dont 
know  its  meaning -
I  sometimes  re-
member  we  are 
to  die,  and 
hasten  toward 
the  Heart  which 
how  could  I  woo 
in  a  rendezvous  where  there [goes up right side]
is  no  Face?  Emily - [comes down left side]
