Another dark gloomy day. Went to the Academy to look over the pictures of Candidates for Academician & associates. Saw Miss Durfee. Told me that my picture was much liked and that several had inquired the price but all thought it more than they could pay. I told her to offer it for $1500. Dined with the G. B. Club at Martinelles and had a pleasant time. Eastman, Gifford and I went from there to the club and when they left I came sadly to my room. Have been very depressed and think constantly of dear Gertrude.
