Tuesday, Feb 26, 1884 Painted on my cliff picture. At 4'oclock attended an Art Union meeting. Shattuck and Bristol and Bierstadt uniformly keep away. The prospect is more encouraging and we have received a hundred subscribers the past week. We voted to issue the March No. of the Journal on a showing that the expenses would not be more than $300 above the income. Bierstadt and Huntington agreed to loan $250 each to the Society. We all feel encouraged. Attended the G. B. dinner at Purcells. The usual company present with the addition of Commander Gorringe. Rained in the afternoon.
