Wednesday, Apr 4, 1888 The weather is mild and pleasant. Sara and Mary came to see the little picture in its frame which Mary is going to give to Alice Crawford for her wedding gift and this afternoon I sent it to her by Wilmurt. Have painted on Calverts picture for Lila Brace's wedding gift and began a late Autumn picture 15x18. In the evening Calvert, Sara and I went to the Casino to see "Erminie" which has run over 700 nights. It was very pretty and very amusing. It is a beautiful theatre in every way. I sent to the First National bank, Rondout today a check on the Bank of the Metropolis for $500 to pay my note due on the 6th.
