I have been here for three weeks but I have been working awfully hard and
enjoying it. That is
wh why you haven't
heard from me. Work takes more out of me than it used to—a great deal more.
But I enjoy it more than anything else. I have a funny little room in the
attic here, with a sloping ceiling, like my "rose bower"5 in our old first house.6 Do you remember? I can always work
best in a low room under the roof. All my best ASTICOU INN
MAINE books were written in Jaffrey N.H.7 in a little room8 where I could almost touch the ceiling with my hand. I feel afraid in a big room. I like to be snug.
