Have worked all day on a new picture 24x36. The idea is the leaves falling. Grey sky, a figure, a birch tree and a pool of water. A Mrs. Runyon and her husband called. She is a daughter of Mr. Wood of Mt. Kisco and I once met her at her fathers. She wanted me to take her as a pupil. I explained that it was impossible but she seemed quite disappointed. George Coale sent Gertrude a pair of canvas back ducks which I shall take up home tomorrow.
