Saturday, Apr 14, 1888 I sent notices to the members of the Artists Mutual aid society today for a meeting at Woods Studio on Tuesday next at 3.30. I had a letter from Whittredge this morning saying he intended to invite the Society out there this year for their outing to take a walk and to lunch at his house. My shirts, underclothes, Handkerchiefs, socks etc bought from the Keep Manufacturing Co. and my new trunk all came today. Jay Smith the Art Agent of the Minneapolis exposition called today. I am to let him have Fred Nortons picture, "A Kaatskill Cliff" the Late Autumn 15x18 I am painting and one of my small pictures in a nice frame. I dined with several of the artists at a German place in 6th Av. where I lunch sometimes. There were there Wm. Hart, Dolph, Guy, Perry, Henry, Guy, Geo. B. Butler, Pope, Eaton, & Ryder. We staid there until ten oclock when most of them went to the club. I did not feel very well and came to my room after taking a walk up as far as 30th St.
