Ordered a frame for Julia Dillon and also one for myself for my picture 24x42 which I am about completing. Silleck is to do them. To have hers for Christmas and mine by Dec. 15th. Mary is to go home today and I shall miss her. It is not good for me to be alone here in my present depressed condition and I am glad to have any of my people here. I had a talk with Snedecor today about buying the pictures of American Artists. He has not the capital but he thinks it will eventually come to that. Booth called but not to sit as he has had a long rehearsal and was not well. I am at work on my landscape and having had a good nights rest feel a great deal more hopeful today.
