Friday, Dec 10, 1880 Repainted my snow picture. I dont think it is as good as it was at first and I question whether it is worth painting. No one will care for it. I wish I liked more brilliant and more cheerful things. So few people care for my sober pictures. Mr. Pratt came down again this afternoon and finished his list of Giffords sketches. I am going home tomorrow to which I look forward with much pleasure. It would be still pleasanter if I could take some money up with me or some encouraging report. Went up to the Coleman House on my way to dinner to see Oscar Sawyer to ask him to go up home with me. He was not in but I left a card asking him to go and to meet me at the 11 o'clock train.
