Charles E. Burchfield's Dreams, Journals, August 16, 1917

At earliest light I awoke and saw a fog; I fell asleep and the fog came forth in my dream. – I dreamt Donald, Fred, & Drayton Smeltz started [northwards] walking. Donald & I were as we are now; but Fred & Drayton were as if ten years old, barefooted. We separated; D & I together, the other two disappeared; we wandered along the curving up & down hill road; we met at noon to eat lunch; [though] it was high noon; the north sky was grey black, a darkness of night hung over all things.
