Friday, Dec 18, 1874- Went to Kingston for the wagon seat. It was pretty cold with a N.W. wind. Painted on a little winter picture a part of the day and part of the time on Julia Vauxs picture for which I made a box this afternoon in which to send it to Wilmurt according to Vauxs instructions. Maurice has finally gone to bed used up and Gertrude is going through the old round of caring for him. Took my usual walk this evening towards Jacobs Valley.
