Finished Lauras little picture and worked on another one which I design either for Vanderlip or S[?]. Attended the Council Meeting. It gives me the greatest satisfaction to write that the Academy is at last entirely out of debt, as we this evening instructed the Treasurer to pay the balance of the mortgage $5000 as soon as possible. Prof. Marsh and two ladies called and spent some time with me. Frank Weeks called and I finally had to tell him I could not go with them to the Adirondacs on Monday as I hoped to. Received a letter from Booth in which he tells me he will finish his engagement this week and will come on to N.Y. and sit for me to finish what there is to do to the pictures.
