Tuesday, Mar 4, 1884 The weather remains very cold. I did not work today as I did not feel well. I had Julia, Marion and Emma Brace to lunch. At 4 I went to a meeting of the trustees of the Art Union. Subscriptions continue to come in and we have reduced the debt. The Newton trial proceeded and lasted until near midnight. Newton was examined and simply denied every thing. I wonder he had not done this before. His simple denial before the Trustees would certainly have had great weight with me. I did not get to bed until after 1 o'clock. I saw in the Tribune yesterday a notice of the death of Sammy Bostwick at the age of 71 years at Lanes. I had no idea he was so old.
