Wednesday, Apr 25, 1888 I went up Third Avenue this morning and ordered some of Weidners Cider, took a look at Montross' collection of pictures and walked down to my studio. The weather is still cold but bright. I sent checks as follows. $750 to the First National Bank Rondout to pay my note due there on the 28th the last of the two thousand I borrowed a year ago. Also $53 to H. S. Ter[?] for the casket for our father and $2.10 to Burton for some paper. A letter came from Mrs. Lord, to whom I wrote a day or two ago proposing to go down to her place on Thursday, telling me to come. The Delamter Iron works in W. 13th burned last night. I saw the fire on my way to my studio and walked over there, a long distance, but there was such a crowd I could not get near and came back to the Century for a little while.
