Thursday, Nov 22, 1883 Painted on my studio. It has been like a summer day, so warm that fires were oppressive and the doors of the house were thrown open. Mary seems better. My money for my picture sold in Louisville came today $540. A note from Mrs. Mora inviting me to meet the Frothinghams on Monday evening, which I declined and a letter from Downing in excellent spirits. Wrote to Teale & Lawrence of Palenville for Gussie, to Mrs. Ezra Van Aken inviting her to come and see my picture and sent my two checks to the Bank of the Metropolis at different times.
