Thursday, Nov 15, 1883 Sara, Edith Cook and I went to N. Y. with the W. S. noon train. It was a pretty cool day. Mr. Philips and his daughter Gertrude were on board. Sara went to Calverts and I was there at dinner. In the evening attended a meeting of the Art Union board of Control at the Century at which we did a great deal of business. There were present, Bierstadt, Bristol, Perry, Shirlaw, Dielman, Beard and myself.
