Tuesday, Mar 9, 1880 A snow storm. Painted on Gertrudes picture a while and then took up my "Uplands" and improved it very much. Whittredge came in and gave me a good suggestion about letting the clouds drag over the mountain. Drew at the Academy. On Monday evening Eastman Johnson and I were put on the hanging committee of the Academy on behalf of the Council much against my will. Snowed most of the day.
