Near Lucerne Aug 11 1893
Dear Wanda On top of this Swiss mountain you see this view in [ ] card. It is one of the very finest I every enjoyed hundreds of peaks and hills and mountains and glaciers with hundreds of little farms and cottages and lakes in the valleys far below clouds of every form and color lingering, marching, rising, sinking, forming, fading. Sunshine streaming through their fringes, falling in glowing silver on their domes and swelling [ ] and making lovely purple shadows in the hollows, Broad spaces of shimery silvery spangles on the Lowland lakes. With much Love JM
