DECORATED BY LEO MANSO. ; 24mo 5" - 6" tall; 16 pages; Frost bought the Homer Noble Farm so as to have a place to stay while he was summering in Ripton (the place he considered home at the time he inscribed the work; and SO NOTED this location in his handwritten inscription). Since adjacent Bread Loaf [writers' conference] was a part of his yearly schedule, he usually arrived early and stayed late. The property had a large farmhouse and... A little cabin. Frost stayed in the little cabin, a short walk up the hill. He had privacy to write and took his meals with [the Morrisons] down at the house. FROST spent several hours every morning with attending to his papers. He had many visitors at the cabin, including literary friends and admirers who would talk with him far into the night. Many of his friends, including Peter Stanlis, Reginald Cook and Larry Thompson, went on to write about him. One of his last poems written was this, called, "A Cabin in the Clearing" Reading, in part: "I am the guardian wraith of starlit smokeThat leans out this and that way from their chimney. I will not have their happiness despaired with. " ; Signed by Author
