Wednesday, Dec 29, 1880 Have not felt at all well today and have done but little. Addressed about a hundred cards to my lady friends which I am going to send on New Years day. It has snowed all day, a wild storm and cold. Went up to Eastman Johnsons to dine. The trains on the Elevated road were so full I had to wait for several trains. Ernest Longfellow, Staigg and Moricuse Conways son dined at Eastmans and we staid until 11 oclock. Conway had considerable to say about the English artists and their aesthetic wives the chief of whom seems Mrs. Boughton.
