Poetry Manuscript Signed]: Bonac [Bonack]
1952. Three page holograph manuscript of the poem "Bonac" on three octavo leaves written on rectos only. Shows extensive corrections. Note dated in 1952 on the last leaf by Wheelock explaining that this was the first draft of the poem written in 1951 and that "Bonac is the term used by local people for that section of Long Island from Montauk Point west, along the south shore for about thirty miles, including, of course, East Hampton where I have spent part of almost every summer for sixty-four years, and where I have written most of my poems." Wheelock was apparently unsure of the spelling and altered it on the manuscript from "Bonack" to "Bonac." Bonack was an old place name derived from Accabonac Harbor. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
