Friday, Jan 4, 1884 Still very cold. I do not think it has thawed a particle today. Have painted all day. A young woman from the Graphic called and told me Will Low was painting "Telling the bees["], but he had not as pretty a girl as mine and he had represented her just in the act of putting a shred of black on the hives. Ben Knower called and we discussed Thompson. He seems disinclined to go with me to talk to him and I shall go alone. Went around to the club a little while and then came to my room and wrote to Mrs. Dr. Pelton. I overslept myself this morning and had my breakfast in my room.
