[c. 1968]. Typescript of the piece that served as the prologue to Sarton's nonfiction book Plant Dreaming Deep, the sequel to I Knew a Phoenix. In this piece, Sarton uses the occasion of hanging a portrait of an ancestor to reflect on the route she took, from her English and Belgian ancestry, to the home she bought in a New Hampshire town which serves as the subject of the book. Ten pages, obviously a re-typing as there are precious few errors, even corrected errors. Signed by Sarton on the final page: "May Sarton/ from Plant Dreaming Deep." The first nine pages are typed on very thin paper with a slight corner crease to the third page; the last sheet, with the signature, is on heavier weight paper stock, and has previously been folded in thirds; else fine.
