Opposite the first page of text, Frost has written out a 16 line poem, titled in his hand “Unnoticed” and initialed at the end, “R.F.” The poem first saw print in the Saturday Review, March 28, 1925 and was collected as “On Going Unnoticed” in West-Running Brook (1928). The recipient, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, an early supporter of Frost, visiting the Frost family in New Hampshire. Weygandt’s book on the area, The White Hills, is still highly regarded.
