Wednesday, Mar 11, 1885 Bitterly cold. Fuller & Mrs Warren came and looked at my pictures. I dont know what the result will be but Fuller said they would talk it over and make some arrangement. Rev. Mr. Donald called, also a lady from Davenport, Iowa to see about instruction in painting. She was a woman as old as I am, but she wanted to work here. I told her of my plan of taking four pupils at my home. Wrote to Sara and received from Alice a photograph of her "Tommy" now two and a quarter years old and yet I have never seen him. Spent the evening at Marys with little inclination to go out. The weather has moderated.
