  We enjoyed our trip, got to visit our various children and grand children along the way (as far as Los Angeles) and saw many strange and fantastic natural wonders - But - it is grand to be back in my own country, (which is buried in a beautiful fall of snow) - and I can hardly wait until I can get out in my favorite woods, set up my easel, and go to work - the long abstinence from it, enforced by my stay in the hospital and the Retrospective, has caused my brain to seethe with ideas - a good result !
  We do hope you can find your way to Gardenville in the near future - 
  Thanks again for your letter -
Cordially yours
Charles Burchfield.
