00815 [5]an occasional tree have changed from green to a gorgeous crimson or yellow. The maple grows to an enormous size (as we rate size) – and is a very shapely beautiful tree. I do not think the Elm is interesting in its change but is so graceful & lovely. These are the two most conspicuons trees I see in our drives. I am glad you may possibly be east this winter. We will have a welcome for you. I do not recall my expression in regard to going West. At present I have no expectation of doing so – for some other member of our little household must go next. But we hope to have Annie at home next Spring. Alas how far away it seems. I was called away from this and resume to say good bye – I imagine your camp fire is burning low.
