Wednesday, Feb 23, 1881 A letter from Mary Gifford which interests me greatly in the relations of some of her recent expressions which seem to have relieved her from a state of sorrow and discouragement. Weir called on his way to Princeton to lecture. Miss Storrs came with a friend with a card from Mr. de Forest to see the picture he is to present to her father. Called on Mrs. Junius Henri Browne and her sister Mrs. Holden. Mr. Sartain the artist was there. I had never met him before. The weather is intensely cold again.
