Saturday, Jan 21, 1882 Dark and rainy this morning. Too dark to paint. I am going home by 4 oclock train. Went home. It was raining when I left. At Rhinebeck the ferry boat was detained half an hour by the fog and a great field of floating ice. Found Tom on the other side with a sleigh. All were glad to see me for I had not been home since just after New Year. Park was particularly delighted and could hardly be induced to go out of doors again.
