Two letters written by Joseph Cornell to Muriel Streeter Schwartz.

The second letter, 1963, describes a "pre-Easter experience" of a "Hudson River Scene" which evoked childhood memories and encloses a card quoting a sermon by John Donne and a magazine clipping displaying the word "idyll" and a nude woman posing with a young male deer.
