Mary Webb. “November.” Typescript poem, one leaf, 7¼″ x 6″, white wove paper. Eighteen lines, one ink correction. The title is written in black ink and appears to have been added to the sheet at a later date. Cut from a larger sheet, one ink spot, and with the penciled number “61” in upper-right corner. Even while mourning the withdrawal of green nature into winter, Webb takes comfort in a companion who can sustain her with a word of praise through the drabness and grey.
