Monday, Feb 25, 1884 Left home for N. Y. by the early train. Calvert came with me. Reached my studio at 11.30 and after lunch went to work on a little picture of an effect I saw in the Highlands but I did not make much of it. Called on Mrs. Anderson and Miss Nesmith in the evening. It snowed a little when I left home. The river is open to Pokeepsie but on Sunday they were sailing an iceboat and skating on the river at Steep Rocks. It rained this evening when I came to my room.
