Booth did not come today until after 12 on account of the funeral of his brother Junius' child and then he was only able to sit a short time. I had changed the background in the Richelieu and worked on it a little. Eastman Johnson came while he was here and Booth gave me the wink to show the pictures to him which I did. He criticized some things but was encouraging on the whole so that now I feel still more confidence in what I have done. I slept very well last night and have felt somewhat better today but by no means well. I shall go home tomorrow for a few days at least until I get well.
