Wednesday, Sept 6, 1882 Went to my studio after breakfast and painted a little picture on the Yellowstone near Clarks Fork. I had written to Sillstedt asking where my picture is which I let him have this spring as I wanted to send it to the Academy or to Philadelphia. When I came over to dinner I found a letter from him enclosing a check for $300 for the picture which he had sold. Also a letter from Downing about my trout rod. A telegram came from Weir asking if they and the children should come tomorrow by the 11.35 train. I answered to come and I would meet them. The Goetchins's are coming tomorrow too, so we will have a house full. Andrews, Jamie, Sedgwick and I went up to Kingston to see the "Gigantean Minstrels".
