Saturday, Feb 21, 1880 Joe came in this morning feeling better. Booth came to say he would not sit for me today. Mr. Bates of Providence called and bought the little picture I painted yesterday for $137 without frame. Mrs. Jacob Sharp and her cousin Miss Ruff called. It snowed violently about noon but soon cleared off. I left for home via Wallkill Valley at 3. Tom met me at the Junction. I was glad to be at home again.
