Wednesday, May 17, 1882 Came to N. Y. by the noon train. Found both of my pictures back here from the Academy and am arranging them to send away. Mary had gone up to Alpine for the day and came in just after dinner loaded down with wild flowers and apple blossoms. Called to see Booth. Edwina is sick. Downing was there and a Dr. Morely. Was on my way up to Mrs. Stones who had invited me to meet Mrs. Julia Ward Hare. Booth could not go on account of Edwina. I dreaded to go but met many friends. Mrs. Youmans, Mrs Eastman Johnson, Miss Marion Healy, Mrs. Isham, and many others.
