Saturday, Aug 19, 1882 Putting away my painting materials over at my studio. My place looks neat and tidy notwithstanding the drought. [?] keeps it in good order. In sending my sketching box and materials home from Montana one joint of my umbrella stiff and the seat of my camp stool were lost. Went down town this afternoon to see about repairs. Wrote to Alice. It has been a cool lovely day and dear Gertrude has been in my thoughts all day. It seems quiet here and would be almost lonely if I were not busy.
