Friday, Jan 14, 1887 Six or seven inches of snow fell in the night and today we have had sleet and rain. There is a great body of snow on the ground now and I had Tom remove some of it from the stable and barn roofs for fear it might crush them. I walked down to the mail and received a letter from Downing saying he could not come up now. Not a word about the little pictures from any one. I begin to think the scheme I hoped so much from will be a failure as I have no money to advertise more. I sent my letter to Fuller today. I went to my studio but did not do much. I begin to be a little anxious and worried and when I feel that way I cannot work.
