"TO THOMAS PAINE" [poem]. Typed manuscript signed (TMsS), ribbon copy, eleven lines on letter-size bond, double-spaced, signed in full ("Clark Ashton Smith / Auburn, Calif.") at bottom, with one autograph edit and two corrections of typing errors. A short encomium in blank verse for the secularist hero of the American Revolutionary War. Undated but the up-and-down signature is early -- as is the writing, which is pompous and conventional. Apparently unpublished. Not in Sidney-Fryer, A Clark Ashton Smith Bibliography. Minor edge nicks and creasing, some general rumpling, stain on verso, a good copy. (#136824).
