And it was to the familiar haunts near his Hudson Eiver home that his thoughts wistfully turned while win tering in Southern California in 1921. As he pictured in his mind the ice breaking up on the river in the crystalline March days, the return of the birds, the first hepaticas, he longed to be back among them he was there in spirit, gazing upon the river from the summer-house, or from the veranda of the Nest, or seated at his table in the chestnut-bark Study, or busy with his sap-gathering and sugar-making. Casting about for a title for this volume, the vision of maple-trees and dripping sap and crisp March days playing constantly before his mind, one day while sorting and shifting the essays for his new book, he suddenly said, I have it Well call it Under the Maples His love for the maple, and consequently his pleasure in having hit upon this title, can be gath ered from the following fragment found among his miscellaneous notes I always feel at home where PREFACE the sugar maple grows It was paramount in the woods of the old home farm where I grew up. It looks and smells like home. When I bring in a ma ple stick to put on my fire, I feel like caressing it a little. Its fiber is as white as a lily, and nearly as sweet-scented. It is such a tractable, satisfactory wood to handle a clean, docile, wholesome tree burning without snapping or sputtering, easily worked up into stovewood, fine of grain, hard of texture, statelyas a forest tree, comely and clean as a shade tree, glorious in autumn, a fountain of cool ness in summer, sugar in its veins, gold in its foliage, warmth in its fibers, and health in it the year round CLARA BAEBUS The Nest at Riverhj West Park on the Hudson New York CONTENTS I.
