Friday, Mar 16, 1888 All day at the Academy where we are getting on well. The exhibition will cause discussion for its variety and catholicity. Mary & Sara came to my room to select a little picture for a wedding gift to Alice Crawford. It has begun to rain. Spent the evening with Mary & Sara. The streets are in a fearful condition now that the great body of snow is melting. When I came to my room I found a letter from Girard dated the 15th. They had received no mail from New York until Wednesday. The storm was not quite as severe there. I also had a letter from Janette Hubbard.
