A bright sunny day—

At midmorning, a rarely beautiful sight—a jet-plane, with white trail, speeding across the northern sky from east to west—(I wished Bertha to see it but I knew before she could get out, it would be gone) However when I came out of the studio a few moments later, the plane had turned in a wide arc and was proceeding eastward at a lower elevation—so I called Bertha on the intercom—

The plane itself was a like a little white dart against the deep blue of the sky, the ruffled exhaust double plume scarcely less brilliant—below the trees glowed orange yellow against the sky—
