    • 1908, W. B. M. Ferguson, Zollenstein, chapterIV:
      So this was my future home, I thought! [] Backed by towering hills, the but faintly discernible purple line of the French boundary off to the southwest, a sky of palest Gobelin flecked with fat, fleecy little clouds, it in truth looked a dear little city; the city of one's dreams.

      Here the galley paused not at all, but floated easily in the blue of the sky among fleecy clouds tinted with rose.
