Helen Hunt Jackson Papers, Part 2, Ms 0156, Box 2, Folder 25a: Elizabeth Agassiz to HHJ, [1875?].
Transcribed by Gloria Helmuth, 2003.

Envelope addressed:
Mrs. William S. Jackson
Colorado Springs
[probably just after the marriage of HHJ to William S. Jackson, 1875.]

My dear Mrs Jackson

Will you let me answer the cards you were kind enough to send me, with an informal word of sympathy & interest? "Colorado Springs" - meant indeed the renovation of life for you - did it not?

I am the more inclined to take this liberty because I have had in my thoughts a cordial word of thanks to you which has remained unspoken for many months.

You were kind enough to send me last winter your "Story of Boon" , - its moral beauty touched me deeply and I always intended to write to you about it; but the days go by and so many things remain unsaid which seem takes too long to say..

I am almost glad now that the occasion comes when I can add to my acknowledgment of your kind thoughts for me a sincere wish for your happiness in the new life which opens before you -

Farewell -
My sincerity
Your friend
Elizabeth C. Agassiz
