Wednesday, Jan 19, 1881 Called on Julia Dillon and went to see Mr. Richards about Miss Ford who called yesterday. I think we will let her enter the school next week. Met Waller on my way down. He seemed relieved I had withdrawn my picture and said he had been to see me. Painted all day on my smaller picture. This evening wrote to Sedgewick and to Alice. Mary and I had a talk on the future. She is troubled but is very brave. O if we could be wise when we are young.
