To Zoar Valley Again – as yesterday, I delayed so long in deciding to come down, I had less time than I should have had – However today I decided to introduce on of the breaks in the clouds shining thru with cobalt sky, which will add to the effect.
There seemed to be more, and different people about the Zoar. One young man, a son, came out and said that his mother had talked of nothing else yesterday afternoon and evening, of my picture. I forgot to mention yesterday, that the oldest boy, probably 6 or 7, would come at intervals to see me work, and was dazzled by my picture.
