A dream -
On an expedition with Moe, Young and others (unidentified) of the Guggenheim Jury into the Appalachian Mts., in search of rare botanical specimens. We found several groups of a strange Jack-in-the-pulpit, growing at the bases of huge mossing beeches. Odd feature were seed-pods, containing large seeds resembling buckeyes.
