Wednesday, Jan 7, 1885 At work on my winter sunset in the mountains refining and improving the sky. Marion came over to see her picture she is to give to Miss Warner. She seemed greatly struck with my winter. On the other hand Gill came in to get a picture for Springfield and did not notice it. I am to let him have my October 20x24 nett [sic] price $350. Catalogue price 450. I hate this way of doing business and told him so, but one is obliged to do what others do to a certain extent.
