45

Clouds are put on mountains in more exquisite order than wearing apparel upon ladies. every vapor particle is as well put in place as to color form & light & shade as God can do it Nor in all the mists & fogs & clear drawn cumuli nor in the wondrous refractions that build fantastic mounts in the air is there anything really illusive all to nature is solemn & substantial matter of [radical] fact cloud lands are swept away but so also are the rock lands
