What wonderful weather is this fall weather—I can only describe it as capricious. Weather of the Indian Summer type prevails—smoky days of warm elusive sunshine, spring breezes, fast shedding trees, burning leaves, from which comes the rich spicy smoke that we fairly drink in, bright colors, tangy nights of mottled skies and bright moon.
