[Jeanne C.] Carr
 3 O the music that is blessing me now the sun of last week has given the grandest notes of all the yearly anthem#9185 00194 [4.?] I said that I was going to stop here untill morning & pray a whole blessed night with the falls & the moon but I am too wet & must go down An hour or two ago I went out somehow on a little seam that extends along the wall behind the falls. I suppose I was in a trance but I can positively say that I was in the body for it is sorely battered & wetted As I was gazing pass the thin edge of the fall & away beneath the column to the brow of the rock
