Adirondacks - August 1903

Adirondacks, August 3, 1903

The English artist Wilfred Von Glehn thanking Julian Alden Weir for a stay at the farm:

I write you—as from a different country, so great is the change here after the quiet, peaceful and pastoral Branchville—that will always represent for me, when I return to England—the peace loving “intimate” America and very dear to think of—I’m glad to come back to you and am looking forward to it…

I can’t tell you how I enjoyed those good days with you all—the fields—the woods—the fishing—silent hours, the peaceful times at night looking up into the stars…
