Wednesday, Dec 23, 1885 Dr. Draper who died suddenly with Pneumonia was buried today. He and his wife went abroad with us and we were in England and at Paris together. I always found him very companionable and agreeable. I was thinking about him only the day before I saw this notice of his death. After breakfast I went to Huylers and bought some candy and to Vantines and got some little Japanese baskets to put them in for the children. Have painted all day and am always happy when I am at work. Have painted on Mrs. Warrens picture and can finish it in a short time now but I do not intend to be in a hurry with it.
