Nov 15, 1917 -

          Altho the stars shone all night (I woke up from time to time, + thought how the sky moved overhead, bringing new scenes of stars every hour) this morning the November Grey fills the air.

     Atmosphere is violet; houses recede under their eaves; smoke hurries SW ward – The darkest sky is to the Northwest opposite the Dawn.
