Thursday, Jan 11, 1883 My mothers condition warranted me in coming down to N. Y. by the noon train as I had some business to attend to. Mrs Shufeldt with two little children from the home was on the train going to take them to homes. Very cold weather. Attended a meeting of the Century trustees at which we considered and adopted a report recommending the club to buy the Rossiter house. Damaging disclosures regarding Newton the chairman of the house committee.
