I have been low all day, feeling loss of memory and dulness of brain—but look at the weather! I hope it is only that.
There's nothing new about mood being affected by weather. Frances Rolleston felt it, as attested to by this letter. But her next line showed that her mood did not depend on the weather:
I look at my "3 Parts" with thankfulness—done so far.
She referred here to her book, Mazzaroth: the Constellations, which after many years of preparation was ready for publication. Thankfulness was her attitude. Thankfulness does not depend on weather or mood. It is a choice. FR made it a continual choice and a permanent attitude.
