[letterhead]5I have ever known: masses of infinite delicacy and wonderful depth, changing from one beautiful form into another, filling the canyon here with golden light and there with grand, dark shadows, and at last vanishing in the far away sky, leaving the atmosphere so ineffably pure as to set one's whole being, as it were, in harmony of motion.05068[letterhead]6I wish I might have stayed longer with you last week. Since leaving you I have thought of a thousand things that I should like to have talked about. I carry with me my pleasant memories of the afternoon at your fireside.May your winter be pleasant and comfortable. Some05268
