Discontent

Sarah Orne Jewett

The Benoit Manuscript

Tim A. Benoit of South Berwick, Maine has provided a photocopy of a manuscript -- found in his home -- of Jewett's "Discontent."  As of this time, the manuscript has not been authenticated.  It appears to be a specially prepared gift or presentation copy, bound in ribbon, copied, signed, and dated by S. O. Jewett, June 22, 1879.  Click here to see a transcription of this text along with three other texts of this poem.  This manuscript is the property of T. A. Benoit, and may not be copied or reproduced without his permission.
