599 Summit Avenue

It was to this neighborhood, these friends and a third-floor room that FSF returned in July of 1919 determined to become an author.  In mid-September, he wrote:

     "In a house below the average

      On a street above the average

      In a room below the roof

      With a lot above the ears

I shall write Alida Bigelow...Schribner has accepted my book.  Aint I smart."
