Saturday, May 8, 1886 Raining violently and wind N. E. Mary and I were going up on the City of Kingston today but concluded to go by train. I telegraphed to Sara. The prize exhibition opens today. Four prizes have been awarded, of $2000 each to Ulrich, Millet, Edward Emerson Simmons and Clifford Grayson. The papers of course praise the exhibition with some slight dissent from the awards. Mary and I went by 4 o'clock train. It rained when we arrived but Tom met us.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
