Dec. 16, 1917 -
    A.M. – To Bentley’s + Farquhar’s woods walking – a fluffy fall of snow-flakes from the East – sun a pale whitespot (sic) – Immense silence of woods – the peter-bird song – nut-hatches – Religious silvery-gray gloom of beech-grove.
    The star snow.
    P.M. – The sun a blood red – with a shaft of yellow light shooting up from it – sinks behind the gray-black houses.
    In fields in front of Bentley’s for walk in the December Dusk – S.W. the sky a rich neutral O, the snow startling white, houses “lost” in dense 49. (sketch)
