Monday, Jan 16, 1882 Painted all day on my Academy picture and hope I am advancing it although it goes slow. Calvert and I went to Dalys Theatre to see the Passing Regiment a rather bright play. It rained and the weather so far all winter has been uncomfortably warm. No one comes after pictures and the winter is slipping by and the summer is coming when no man can sell. I sent my picture of the "pasture" to Utica today. Had a district telegraph signal put in my room today.
