Thursday, Sept 21, 1882 We were all to have gone to Hunter today by invitation of Sam Coykendall but it rained and we did not go. Maurice was gone when we came down stairs disappearing under most distressing circumstances. I wrote to Calvert about him asking him to present his drawing money in Newport. I dont know what to do about him. He is a never ending torment. Wrote to Rinner & Co. about my New Orleans picture, to Downing and to Weir. A letter from Mrs. Sawyer from Londonderry Vt. asking if it would be convenient to have her come here about Oct. 1. Wrote her to come whenever it was convenient. My lame side has troubled me a good deal today. Mary Anderson played here tonight but I did not go.
