Dec 17, 1917 -
    A heavy fog in the night condenses on the trees in thick white frost –
    Houses pale ghosts in the haze –
    The S.E. sky is a pale papery yellow – against it the trees are silvery gray feathery shapes (darker than sky -) against houses trees are beautiful white pattern    a startled cardinal jars frost from a branch –
    The sun comes slowly – it is not till midmorning that it is noticeable – trees against north sky (neut (sic) yel (sic))   a chaste white, lighted at their peaks
