Tuesday, Apr 11, 1882 Cold as winter. I was to go up to Dobbs Ferry to spend the day by invitation of Emma Brace if it were a pleasant day but it was so cold and windy I was sure she would not expect me and sent her a note telling her I would not come. Changing my large picture which I do not like but do not seem to get any thing to please me. I have nearly finished a picture 20x24. My cough troubles me yet. I spent the evening at Marys not caring to go out any where. I am too unhappy to go out.
