Robert Frost Was In Ardent Support Of Israel (Randyjw; May 2, 2018)
I love Robert Frost’s poem, “Stopping by Woods On A Snowy Evening”.
Apparently, according to this handwritten letter, Robert Frost was in ardent support of Israel:
The Jefferson Hotel
1200 SIXTEENTH STREET, N.W.
Washington 6. D. C. DIstrict 7.4704
As everyone must know I am in favor of brave nations, little and big. I have been a Balfour Israelite from aforetime, and was recently romantically confirmed in my politics when I stood face to face with Nehemiah the Restorer in person by the great stones in situ (I happened on all by myself) of the wall he restored three thousand years ago in defiance of Sanballat. His is one of the most stirring stories of the Bible, one children are not apt to hear enough of. I trust you will read it again now to please me, if I may be your guide in reading, by way of thanking you for this honor.
