I could ony recall a few titles, and a line or two here and there, not knowing though where they belonged. I began to rewrite on the 12th of June, 1908, and on the 12th of September, 1908, it was ready for publication." She writes at the end: "My 'Autumn Leaves' are gathered, And now they must be pressed. I hope they will give pleasure, And hearts by them be blessed." ; Cloth lightly worn at tips, slightly soiled. Pages clean and free of tears or writing.
