Wednesday, Nov 9, 1881 Sara and I went to N.Y. by the morning train. It was raining when we arrived. Took a coupe and drove to Gunthers with her beaver skins and arranged with them to make a sacque for her and a cap for me. Then to Tiffanys to see about getting dear Gertrudes Spanish fan and her little watch mended, then to the studio to leave my satchel when we went to Marys where we found Julia sick with a fever. In the afternoon I went clear down to Chatham St. to arrange for having my bed room sett painted and up to Warren & Frillers 42nd St. to get paper for my bedroom in N.Y. and to arrange for having it put on. That night Calvert, Bowyer, Marion and I went to the Park Theatre and saw the H[?] but was not much entertained.
