Wrote a letter to Mrs. Vaux, Calverts mother. Painted on a morning picture of Deans Corner scenery which I began [two years?] ago, but do not feel much like work. I am waiting now to sell some thing but the chances seem rapidly diminishing. Mr. Hoe does not come although he asked to come to see my pictures. Mr. Clark I fear is not coming and I am not a little anxious. Tomorrow Gifford, Eastman and I go to New Haven to attend the reception at the Art School.
