Monday, Feb 2, 1885 Came down to N. Y. this morning. It was very cold and my fire at home nearly went out. Found my stove door in my studio open and the room full of coal gas. I painted on the sky of my twilight and improved it. Geo. Butler who has taken Henrys studio came in and expressed himself quite enthusiastically about my picture. Spent the evening mostly at Marys. Called on Julia and went around to the club a little while.
