Holograph note to a young poet (5 items)

1961. Holograph note on 2 1/2" x 5" slip of paper. Fine condition. "To M.B. - Robinson Jeffers/March 2 1961/my favorite - I have seen and not fallen,/I am stronger than the idols - Women at Point Sur" In early 1961 a friend of the inscribee, "M.B", wrote to Jeffers requesting his autograph for his young friend ("who idolizes your... poetry"). He soon received the personal note from Jeffers offered here along with a letter from Jeffers' daughter-in-law Lee explaining "Father is very ill at present, and even a signature is difficult for him..." It is significant that in the last year of his life from Robinson Jeffers singled out these two lines from 'The Women at Point Sur' as his favorite. Along with Jeffers' note is the original request (the verso of which bears Lee Jeffers' response), the return envelope from Tor House, along with the friend's letter and cover to the inscribee.
