Thursday, Dec 6, 1883 Breakfasted in my studio and went to Dodds Express office to have my fight out. Showing my receipt the agent surrendered at discretion and sent my trunk to my room at once, only because he could not help himself. Worked all day, got my bed room cleaned and in order doing the whole thing myself except mopping up the floor. Mr. Cumming who crossed the St. Gothard pass with us fifteen years ago called with his niece to get some information about the Academy Schools. He lives in London. Dined at Purcells.
