- "JAN. 10, 19—
- "As I came home from the post-office this evening—with three acceptances—I
- revelled in the winter loveliness around me. It was so very calm and still;
- the low sun cast such pure, pale tints of pink and heliotrope over the snow;
- and the great, pale-silver moon peeping over the Delectable Mountain was such
- a friend of mine.
- "How much difference in one's outlook three acceptances make!"
