Saturday, Apr 15, 1882 My picture is nearly done and looks well to me. Robbins called and we had a talk about establishing a rotary exhibition. Bowyer and I went home by 4 oclock train. Downing and Edwina were there having come Tuesday. My father sick with a cold and my mother filled with anxieties. In my discouraged and depressed condition I had all I could do to assume the least cheerfulness but I did and tried to encourage my mother.
