Tuesday, Dec 6, 1887 Pretty cold. Walked down the Bowery and bought a little machine for cutting leather for Sedgwicks Xmas present. I also got a little scale for Jamie for weighing letters. Have been at work on my picture, changing it. It is a little better but does not please me. I heard last night at the club that Eastman Johnson had some trouble with his eyes and went up this evening to see him. I found him suffering from an ulcer on the eye and unable to work. I staid there until nearly 11 oclock talking with him. Saw Mrs. Johnson and Ethel who has grown into a young lady.
