Howells Queries: “Eighty Years and After” and “On a Bright Winter’s Day”

This is a Query: I was rereading the book “The Last Harvest” by John Burroughs (1922). In his last essays, there is mentioned of Howell’s “Eighty Years and After” and a poem “On a Bright Winter’s Day.” I am looking for what publication or website may have these works available to read. Thank you for any assistance.

Sincerely, Peter Laurent / Vallejo, California
