Cambridge Mass: January 13, 1950. A manuscript letter written by Frost to Donald J. Paquette, a noted collector of literature and autographs. Frost responds to a Paquette asking 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.
