Monday, Dec 10, 1883 All over the city up and down town doing a thousand things. Never saw the city more crowded, all the people out buying their Christmas presents, which was a part of my work today. A meeting of the Art Union board of Control. We were locked in in the 4th Story and only got out by taking a pane of glass out of the door of the stairway. It was funny to see Beard crawl through. Eastman Johnson got through easily. A letter from Sara. Heuek a friend of Bowyers from Boston was at dinner. We all went to Dalys theatre to see Girls and Boys. Did not amount to much. Letter from Mr. James Wood from Mt. Kisco written for Mrs. Dr. Pelton to whom I wrote from our camp. Showed Wood and Hubbard my studies. They seemed to think them very good and that I had been industrious.
