  • Notes 
    • a quiet, unassuming woman. Her daughter wrote somewhat critically of her mother that she "trembled, obeyed, and was silent" when Mr. Dickinson spoke. Another rather diplomatic comment the poet made about her mother was, "Mother does not care for thought," suggesting that she was not a particularly intellectual individual. Mrs. Dickinson was active in the Amherst community but not in a leadership role like her husband. She was, in fact, best known for winning numerous cooking awards and recognition for her exceptional produce.
