Thursday, Jan 19, 1882 Awoke with a bad feeling in my head. Worked on my picture but finally had to send for a half bottle of champagne which warded off the threatened head ache. Nicoll came in and invited me to dine with him and several of the artists which invitation I accepted conditionally with reference to my head ache. Van Derliss called. While he was here smoking his cigar Mr. Morse called with Miss Parsons the daughter of Chas. Parsons of the Harper. Went to the dinner at an Italian Restaurant in University Place. There were eleven of us. Nicoll, Collins, Hall, Howland, Lyman, Guy, Wm. Hart, Beard, Wilmarth, Bristol. We had a good time and are to dine together once a fortnight. Came to my studio at 9 when Downing came over and we worked on our braid until 11.
