Friday, Oct 8, 1880 Breakfasted at Marys after sleeping at my room which seemed doubly lonely. After breakfast took the 23 sketches to Wilmurts to be framed and then went down town to Mengers to see about other pictures and how he was getting on. Fitch and I lunched in my room and I came home by 4 o'clock train.
