Tuesday, Feb 17, 1880 Booth came and stood again for Benedick, the third trial. He was greatly depressed and alarmed on account of his wifes health. I think he fears he is going to lose her. I had a letter from Janette very kind and sympathetic and urging me to try to believe as she does that I may communicate with dear Gertrude. A sweet letter from Sara full of consolation and sisterly advice and help. Went to our drawing class in the evening.
