Friday, June 19, 1874- Trimmed my hedge and finished an easel. It has been a magnificent day of fine effects and I ought to have been sketching. Haven Putnam came up to see me about making some illustrations for a book of one of Bryants Poems which I have agreed to do. Received a letter from Fitch and one from Mr. James containing a check for my picture the "Wood Path" for $320. Acknowledged the receipt of it. Sent Wilmurt check for $100. J.M.Varnum for rent to May 1 $120. J. N. Wilson carriage bill $3.
