Thursday, September 4, 1873- I painted a little today on the little picture for Lucy and a little Paestum. Received a letter this evening from Whittredge. He is still ill and I think a little discouraged. He has half a mind to leave Pine Hill and go to Bolton on Lake George but I have written him not to make up his mind hastily. I think he worries about not getting to work but I confess I am a little anxious about him. I have written to Gifford and to Eastman Johnson enclosing post office order for $4.65 for chest of drawers and liquor case.
