To the Elma Nurseries Country, impelled by the fine spring like morning. The reflections of the sun in the water was a pale gold tint, which comes only at certain times in the early Spring. At its rising it had a hazy, rich carnival cast which fore-told rain to come. A soft-moist wind from the southwest.
