Friday, Dec 11, 1885 Went down to the foot of Hamsin St directly after breakfast to find out the name of the Capt of the City of Kingston to whom I want to address a note tomorrow putting Katy Burns in his care. A telegram came from Sara this afternoon saying she had received my letter and would meet Katy and this evening I had a letter from her in which she says my father stays in bed most of the time and still complains of dizziness when he sits up. I feel troubled about him as I always do when he is not in his usual health. I began a picture 15x18 of a scene on the brook at Kellys Corners with variations and have worked on it all day. I think it promises well. I want to have some small pictures ready to send to the various exhibitions. J. G. Brown called and told me Church was at work in his studio. I was surprised as I supposed he was in Mexico. Our French class was this evening.
