A beautiful picturesque day. How much more varied is the color than in summer. Made a sketch of Mary. Should like to get a good portrait of her. I think I made a fair beginning. Wrote a long letter to Lucy, a note to Mrs. Rood, a note to Julia Dillon and one to Pember and Prouty who have written me that they will not be able to get more than two dollars each for my beaver skins. I gave $2.50 for them in Omaha and wrote them I would not sell them for that. I am going to give them to Sara to have a sacque made of them.
