Your letter has put me in a more despondent mood than I was in before receiving it. Should I let your letters sway my feelings as if they were like a straw in the wind?

We have not eaten the rabbit yet nor are we snowed under. Today was clear as a bell and quite cold, but it did not prevent me from going out to paint this afternoon. 

Followed some rabbit tracks before breakfast. It will amuse you to know that I did not know which is head or tail: the one I followed led [[strikethrough]]to[[/strikethrough]] me to where the rabbit lives under a [[strikethrough]]shelving[/strikethrough]] ledge of rock. Which is the way the beast travels. Is it [[rabbit track sketch with arrow pointing right]] or [[rabbit track sketch with arrow pointing left]] so.

Thank you for your long letters. 

With love goodnight. Das.
