Thursday, Mar 22, 1883 Looked over my old pictures and got out an Indian Summer I began more than a year ago and worked on it. Tom Appleton and Miss Hale of Boston called. He looked old and was heavy and stiff but said I looked as young as when he first knew me. Was as talkative as ever. My work does not interest me. How can it when it seems to interest no one else. Attended a meeting of the Rotary Exhibition at the Century. Only Perry, Bristol, Bierstadt and myself were there. There seems no great interest in it. I dread taking a prominent part in it because I have no money and on account of the great labor and time it will demand. We came to no conclusion but it is gradually assuming shape. Calvert seemed troubled today about something. We are all of us full of perplexities.
