Tuesday, May 24, 1881 Tried to paint a bunch of lilacs, snowballs & fleurs de lis but failed utterly. Commenced another picture of Gertrude from the enlarged photograph which came today. Joe, Mary & Marion left today and now it will be lonesome here. A letter from Miss Nesmith. Answered it and wrote Miss Ford and Lucy.
