Thursday, Feb 28, 1884 It was snowing violently when I went to breakfast this morning and a good deal had fallen. I worked on my cliff picture. Went up to Eastman Johnsons to dinner. Miss Mullany and Ethels music teacher were there all going with Mrs. Johnson to Joseffys concert. Eastman and I went to the Century to the Monthly trustee meeting after which the Newton trial proceeded. Mr. Oakley was called by the defense. Newtons checks were produced. They showed that Hearne had been accustomed to endorse these checks which were payable to Century Association but the theory is, only for identification. I think Hearns explanation a reasonable one. We got on slowly and it seems to me the only result will be a question between the veracity of Hearne and Newton.
