The only remark from Pound that I've encountered when Frost's help in
getting him out of St. Es was mentioned was "he wasn't in much of a hurry"
or words to that effect.  I knew of Pound's very favorable review of Frost's
early work, but I haven't heard that he got him into print.

If you consult "the record," you will find that Frost
had little or nothing to do with "getting Pound sprung."
You might also find that the word "kind" can
rarely be applied to Frost's words or deeds.
