Here are two of the pieces he exposes. I also join the transation of the Emily Dickinson letter, Chad sent me. Love letter Emily Dickinson Letter to Benjerman Kimball

"To take the hand of my friend's friend, even apparitionally, is a hallowed pleasure. I think you told me you weree his kinsman. I was only his friend-and yet cannot yet believe the "his part in all the pomp that fills the circut of the Southern Hills, is that his grave is green". His last words on his last note were" a caller comes". I infer it to be Eternity, as he never returned.

Yourtaask must be a fervent one- often one of pain.

Oh Death, where is thy Chancellor? On my way to my sleep, last night, I paused at the Portrait. Had I not loved it, I had feared it, the face had such ascension.

Are even as thyself, For what are stars but asterisks, To point a human life?

Thank you for the nobleness, and for the earnest note- but all are friends, upon a spar.

Gratefully ,E. Dickenson
