Wednesday, Mar 17, 1880 Yesterday and today hanging pictures at the Academy. I came to my rooms last night tired out and very discouraged and depressed. Why did I undertake this depressing duty when I have so much to trouble me. Today we got ahead a little better. This evening I dined with the G. B. Club at the Down Town Club. One of the guests was Jefferson Davis private Secretary. I cant meet these fellows with any cordiality and Dr Otis said the same thing. Wrote to Sade this morning and received a letter from Gill of Springfield with a check for $125 for my small picture.
