Mary Webb. “The Hills of Heaven.” Typescript poem, one leaf, 7¼″ x 4½″, white wove watermarked paper. Sixteen lines, seven ink corrections. Irregularly cut and torn from a larger sheet, with a few crease marks. Penciled number “60” in upper-right corner. Webb remembers the hills of the Long Mynd—where she and Henry had honeymooned—expressing her longing for that happier place and time.
