Wednesday, Feb 25, 1880 Breakfasted with Joe Tomkins this morning at the Brevoort House. When I came to my room found a letter from Mr. Smith of Springfield telling me my small picture was sold also. A nice letter from Allie and one from Girard with insurance policy. Booth came but did not feel in the mood for standing and we have concluded to wait until he comes back from Boston. Painted on a November 12x20 and went to see Wilmurt about sending my picture to England. Parton had a letter from his brother today telling me to whom to send. Mr. Morse and a Boston lady called.
