It is a bright autumn day the North wind is blowing swirling the brown & yellow leaves in heaps & sheets & windrows & soon the trees will be bare & ready for winter these three days are the first real rest days Ive had since I last saw you my dear. Mrs Gilder was asking all about you & I showed her your pictures & she said they were lovely & like me I wish I could start straight home from these charming Berkshire hills I'll soon be back anyhow. Give my love to all & Maggie. Here are some Wintergreens from the hill back of the house. Yours my darlingsJ.M.
