Tuesday, Aug 22, 1882 It has been a little warmer today but still very pleasant with a soft rich atmosphere. I have been busy in my studio moistening my watercolors. Went down town and got a letter from Maurice to Sara telling us he was going to the Yellowstone Park last week also a letter from Cornelia telling her she is soon to be married. Sara and were [sic] invited over to Mrs. Van Deusens to meet some of the ladies of the hill. Mrs. Cornell was there, Mrs. Hutton, Mrs. Hood and her sister and another lady from Ohio, Mrs. Willis and Miss Hornbeck Joe Cornells sister and Mrs. Schreiber who sang very nicely and unaffectedly. She had a very nice strong full voice. Wrote to Mary Gifford.
