    Thank you for keeping Mary’s Farm in your new Yankee magazine, tho I miss it on the back page since it is the first article I read! Because Edie Clark is such an exceptional writer, gifted, in my opinion, I immediately sent for her two most recent books your magazine mentioned and was not disappointed. – Both books, The Place He Made and Saturday Beans and Sunday Suppers are captivating. Her love for New England is evident in all her articles, essays and books and the candid observations are most welcome.

    Thank you for featuring her work. She certainly knows how to connect with a reader.

    I have looked forward to Edie’s article every month. I have read both of her books and hope she writes more. Today a friend gave me some rhubarb, so I got out Edie’s book “SaturdayNight Beans and Summer Dinners and made the rhubarb soup. What a treat!
    I have subscribed to Yankee Mag for years and it is my favorite magazine. I feel a kinship to the people of New England although I really do not have any connection to your part of the country. I have visited twice to Vermont and Cape Cod. Thanks for your giving me an armchair vacation every time I get your magazine. Lou Shellenberger

    Thankyou Edie for this wonderful article……as with all of the others which I have read, there is always something so heartwarming and special which stays with me in my mind’s eye.

    I have only just today read about your beginnings as a writer and just wanted to say how much I loved reading your description of using that typewriter…..the sounds it made, aligning the paper, the words appearing on the page.etc. etc……oh, how I identified with this and remembered my first tentative ‘goes’ on the typrewriter in my fourth year of high school in the early 1960′s…..I went on to be a Secretary/receptionist and, even though I don’t write for my living, I still enjoy typing and seeing the words appearing, not on the paper page these days, but onto my monitor which sits here in my studio in Cottesloe, Western Australia…….I so look forward to reading more and more of your articles as time permits. Regards and Smiles. Sue.

    Edie: I am trying to recall where I read a comment that has stayed with me for years. I want to say it was in one of your columns back in the 1990′s. It was something to the effect that “three of the best things in life are: to be dirty and to get clean, to be hungry and to eat and to be tired and to rest. Is this from one of your columns?

    Thanks.
