Progress Notes


Had to change "Frederic Church" to "Thomas Eakins" in the epigraph of my new poem, since Martin Johnson Heade was a "colleague and student" of Church, and Church--a good and decent man, at least as far as supporting Heade was concerned--would have recommended Heade for the Astor commission.

Even if one is making this stuff up, it is important to get the history close to "right."

That is Church, above.
