Cambridge Mass: January 13, 1950. A manuscript letter written and signed by Frost to Donald J. Paquette who also signs the verso in ink and adds in type "My first letter from Robert Frost..." Paquette was a noted collector of literature and autographs. In this letter Frost responds to a Paquette request for copies of his first edition books.
"I am a simple man, too simple in fact to be more than an onlooker at this competition for my first editions. I have kept none for myself. And I am afraid that this late in the game you won't find any at "a reasonable price." He recommends that Paquette contact Mr. Bohn of "House of Books". Failing that, Frost says he can probably find a photo to hang up. He supplies a rather lovely image of Frost in an armchair with his dog.
11 x 8.5" folded to 5.5 x 8.5", original fold, signs of glued paper on verso. Very good overall. Item #26588
