Emily Dickinson letter
This letter was to Mrs. Samuel E. Mack, dated Autumn 1884. Dickinson expressed pleasure at Mack's recent visit, and quoted an Emily Brontë poem, "Last Lines." (aka No Coward Soul is Mine). Letters from Dickinson are extremely rare. This is expected to sell for $20,000-$30,000.
It was very dear to see Mrs Mack.It is well known that No Coward Soul is Mine was read at Emily Dickinson's funeral by Thomas Wentworth Higginson.
A friend is a solemnity and after the great intrusion of Death, each one that remains has a spectral pricelessness besides the mortal worth -
I hope you may live while we live, and then with loving selfishness consent that you should go -
Said that marvellous Emily Bronte
Though Earth and Man were gone
And Suns and Universes ceased to be
And thou wert left alone,
Every Existence would Exist in thee -Tenderly,Emily -
