“Midwinter of 1943. My barns and sheds, and Gould’s barn, done from my studio window. The bronze horse weather vane of the big barn, showing ‘Trigger’ my black horse in his yellow blanket, standing by the bars of the barnyard. Also, the bird feed box showing on the end of the garage as the first slow snow flakes of a beginning storm in the air. Sold Sept. 1944 to Emma P. Coombs of Southbridge, Mass., who presented it to Rev. William Cole.”
