As Church did not come last night we drove up to Hudson this morning to tell Gifford. Met him and his wife in the street and he and I walked down to the station where I took the 11.32 train for home. Found Mrs. Wellington and Julia Dillon waiting for the day boat at Rhinebeck., Mrs. W. on her way home. Letters from Mrs. Sawyer saying they would be here Friday or Saturday, Weir, Mary Weir, Pell and Church from N.Y. Went over to my studio and painted on Emmas picture and I think finished it. Henry has cut the two large chestnuts in front in my absence. Wrote to Mrs. Weir and to Church. Shall go to N.Y. tomorrow.
