The picture I am speaking of is the imperfect image of the one I love. She is one of such exceedingly great beauty that it cannot be captured on anything by Man's hand, but to me it represents her, and that is as near to heaven as I am likely to get. But the picture, besides being an imperfect symbol of utter perfection, is exceedingly cloudy. The in
