* ' ' Kindest, dearest friend My poor Virginia still lives, al-
though failing fast and now suffering much pain. May God
grant her life until she sees you and thanks you once again!
Her bosom is full to overflowing like my own ivith a 'bound-
less, inexpressible gratitude to you. Lest she may never see
you more, she bids me say that she sends you her sweetest kiss
of love and will die blessing you. But come, oh, come to-
morrow! Yes, I will be calm everything you so nobly wish
to see me. My mother sends you, also, her 'warmest love and
thanks.' She begs me to ask you, if possible, to make arrange-
ments at home so that you may stay with us tomorrow night.
I enclose the order to the Postmaster. Heaven bless you and
farewell. ' '
Mrs. Shew is the "M. L. S. " to whom Poe addressed several
poems which show the almost passionate gratitude he felt to-
wards the lady who had sheltered and tendered his wife during
her fatal illness, with all the solicitude of a mother. Virginia
died the day following the writing of above letter. It was
Mrs. Shew who suggested "The Bells" sitting by the poet
and supplying the title and first lines of several verses.
The above letter is reproduced in Harrison 's Life of Poe.
