Letter reveals meaning of soldiers

"In a letter to her nieces in December of 1861, Dickinson had expressed concern for Stesrns' welfare: 'Ihope that ruddy won't be brought home frozen,' and image echoed in line two" (Monteiro 31). 
Moneiro's explanation and ablility to reference the letter that Emily Dickinson had written provides textual support for some of the poem. I believe this truly helps the reader make a connection with how Emily was feeling.
