Sunday, June 19, 1881 This is the day the world was to come to an end according to some seer. I have written a letter on my trip to the Kaatskills and will send it to the Tribune. Wrote to Mrs. Sawyer about Gertrudes portrait which I have finished and put in the frame and will send at once. Mary and I drove out to Flat-bush to see Miss Ford. She arrived there on Thursday and seemed entirely pleased with her house, and Mrs. Philips seemed pleased with her. I took her out an umbrella, some sketching boards and some paints. After we got home while we were at tea John McEntee drove up on his return from High Falls wanting her to go up to see Annie Norton who is ill. She did not think her illness serious. Sarah Tremper and her daughter were there and Nannie.
