05Nov1862, Shining upon the dear picture

HAWARDEN, Wednesday, November 5th, 1862.
—The aftn sun has a beautiful trick of shining upon the dear picture in the dining-room, making it so lovely, that I am reminded of the lines:
And yet a spirit too, and bright
With something of celestial light?

[FN: Wordsworth wrote : " Something of an angel light."]
