A three-page letter written by Emily Dickinson will be up for sale at the Profiles in History’s Property of a Distinguish American Private Collector auction on December 18.

The letter, in full, reads:

It was very dear to see Mrs. Mack. A friend is a solemnity and after the great intrusion of Death, each one that remains has a special pricelessness besides the mortal worth —- I hope you may live while we live, and then with loving selfishness consent that you should go —-


Said the Marvellous Emily Bronte

Though Earth and Man were gone And suns and Universe ceased to be And thou wert left alone,
Every Existence would Exist in thee—

Tenderly, Emily
