I canÕt, however, itÕs given me so much trouble at a time when I want to get started on a new novel. ItÕll be illustrated with fourteen paintings by N.C. Wyeth, and you know without being told what an excellent workman he is. ThereÕll be about fifteen chapters, covering such things as how a family got a foothold in Maine in the early days.the Maine cooking that I have always found so pleasing, gunning and fishing in Maine, seafaring people IÕve known.MaineÕs too big to be covered in a book of this sort.I hated to tackle it, but I committed myself to it two years ago, and I couldnÕt escape. I believe the publishers plan to to bring it out next June. I see youÕre curious about where I live. Take a look at the letterhead. Kennebunk Beach is the slum of Kennebunkport.Ó The second letter is earlier dated October 1937 asks Miss Fuller ÒWhat books or books would give me the best picture of Portland around 1803?
