Thursday, Jan 29, 1880 A letter from Sara last night giving very bad accounts of Maurice and today she sent me a paper with the announcement of a new city editor in his place. Called to see Gussie today and she came to see me. Joe is anxious to go to Rondout and I presume they will go as soon as he is able. Have painted a little winter picture today but I do not feel at all like work. I am so depressed and seem unable to struggle against it. Julia Dillon called with a Mrs. Daniels from Colorado, interested in mines and in pictures also. She did not buy any thing but asked my prices. Went with Mary to Mrs. Pinchots afternoon. In the evening to the Anatomical lecture at the Academy and afterwards called at Platts.
