Brown came to see me about the October Snow. Said some one had inquired about it. Told him I would sell it for $800 and if he was offered less he need not entertain it. Dined with Gifford to meet George Coale and Jas. Carey Coale. George is his old enthusiastic self and can hardly allow any one of the party a word in edgewise. Today opened an account at the Metropolitan Bank. Have been at work on another study for the Wilson picture which does not please me. Sam Coy Kendall and his wife called. He bought my little November picture, above Steep Rocks, for $200 for a Christmas present for Mrs. Cowell.
