     Nov. 26, 1917 -

     Cold day with fleets of dapply (sic) clouds.  At noon – sun partially obscured – north sky full of big blue holes.  The north sides of houses was cold blueish (sic) – the west very warm – yellow, the east also warm but more neutral –

     ((The cold blue light is chastely beautiful but it falls on evil or hideous things, producing a wonderful contrast))

     At the end of the grey afternoon the red sunlight came out + lit up the strange factories – Beautiful white train smoke –

     ((Small buildings of factories bristle in the black dusk))
