Thursday, Mar 9, 1882 A rainy day. I am greatly depressed and cannot paint. My two pictures went to the Academy, "Indian Summer", and "The Humboldt Valley". Calvert called to see the little Paestum I have painted for him to give to Emma Brace. I tried to paint a little twilight but could not so I went up to see Eastman Johnson who is full of work and has more than he can attend to. Read him Mrs. Giffords letter. He agrees with me that she is foolish to go to law. I thought I would go and see her around at the Sherwood building, but she had just gone out so I called on E. Ward, Bolton Jones, Wyant and Hovendon.
