Nov. 18, 1917

     wild viciously blinding white silver.  It is in the wrong corner of sky.  The distant lights of a town .  A farm girl sets me right – young man takes me in buggy.  The moon is clear now.  My directions mixed it seems in the south (sketch)

     And seems like the primeval landscape with the First Moonrise.
