"In the entire circle of the year there are no days so delightful as those of a fine October, when the trees are bare to the mi ld heavens, and the red leaves bestrew the road, and you can feel the breath of winter, morning and evening -- no days so calm, so tenderly solemn, and with such a reverent meekness in the air." -Alexander Smith
