Friday, Feb 16, 1883 Still rainy. Worked on my picture (20x24) back of Steep rocks looking over the river, which promises well. Calvert came over for a while and looked over my sketches. He is very encouraging and helpful. We went through the rain to Chickering Hall to hear Chas. Elliot Norton on the work of the Archaeological Institute at Assos in Greece. It seemed to be about every thing but Assos and in that way was disappointing to me.
