Wednesday, Feb 28, 1883 The last winter day. I am sorry to see it go for much that I hoped and anticipated from the winter has not been realized. Indeed all my ventures have failed and sometimes I wonder how I keep up my courage. Painted on my picture and wrote Sara about Downings trunk and to tell her I would not come up on Saturday as it is the monthly meeting at the Century. Attended a meeting at the Century to organize a Rotary exhibition. Perry, Wm. Hart, Beard & Wood were present. I am loth to connect my name with it but some one must. We meet again next Wednesday to adopt a constitution. I said I would take no part in it.
