Beyond the shadow of a doubt

Regarding the phrase "beyond the shadow of a doubt", in which Bob in 2000 wanted to know the origin. It appears in Robert Frost's brilliant poem "Trials by Existence". Not sure if that is the first usage, but Frost does not typically use common phrases so I must assume that it originated from him.
