Tuesday, Apr 1, 1884 Constant interruptions and busied with the Gordon affair but managed to paint on my picture in the afternoon. Went to the club. Holyoke talked in an enigmatical way about the decision in the Newton case. I thought he was pumping me and finally told him with some warmth I would not be questioned on the subject. He tried to explain that he was satisfied with the decision but that many of Newton's friends are not. George Booth has resigned from the club for which many are glad. I am sure I am.
