It has rained in torrents all day but tonight has cleared off and is colder. Painted on my new picture. Menger called and told me a lot of things about the Cropseys. Girard came in the midst of the rain. Went over to Vauxs after dinner. Mary was sick in bed with a violent headache. Saw the boys and Lucy and Sara. Julia was going to the Liederkranz ball. Lucy, Bowyer and Downing are coming over to breakfast with me tomorrow. Received a letter from Gertrude and wrote to her.
