Tuesday, Dec 20, 1887 Painted all day, began a winter picture 15x18 from a sketch of last winter. Jay Smith the Minneapolis Art man called to get a picture for a collection he is going to take to Jacksonville Florida. I showed him my little sketches and he was greatly interested in them and thinks he can do something with them. Is coming to see me tomorrow. Went to the club and wrote a short letter to Sara. It was raining and still rained when I came to my room.
