481[?][numeric?] folios were the largest sized photos of Himalayan scenery and Indian buildings and cities. John the vale of Cashmere has not yet been seen or sung. The "Taj Mahal," the tomb of a beautiful beloved woman caused me to put my hand upon my mouth - Inspired marble? Yes. light fleecy as clouds upon Tessiak, spiritual as water in its most spiritual mood 'frozen music,' perhaps, but melting into a smile of love. Dear dervish, lets go and see 'em our two selves! The old year wanes - I give you its last breath. The saddest of years to me. I shall love it for the sacred sorrow it has brought. Thank God for it - for its pure associations and aspirations. For you beloved friend I am always grateful, and my heart always builds precious hopes upon you.Jeanne Carr
