It must have been a busy enterprise, this living--as Emily's breathless note to Sue asked, 'Are you sure we are making the most of it?'--or as she sent her morning greeting, 'O matchless earth, we underrate the chance to dwell in thee!'--or suggested on the three-cornered flap of an envelope, pinned on the side of Sue's workbox:Their poetic production was thus thoroughly integrated into domestic routines, and this is yet another record of their ongoing writing workshop.
[and then she quotes the stanza on the envelope verbatim] (FF 162)
