Wednesday, Jan 9, 1884 Still misty and warm. Worked on a picture from one of my wood studies and advanced it materially. Reichard to whom I sent a note yesterday telling him his pictures were done came down to see them. He seemed entirely satisfied and looked at other things. I think he will want more. Says he is selling pictures. Julia and Mrs. Donaldson came and made me a nice visit after lunch. Reichard sent for his pictures and sent his check for $300. Calvert called toward evening. I dined at Mrs. Andersons with Miss Nesmith and Capt. Price of the Cavalry. I met him at Fort Sidney on my return from Halleck. Wrote a note to Clark the carpenter and one to Mrs Eastman Johnson.
