Monday, July 28, 1884 I have had nothing particular to do today and I always feel it a misfortune not to have some definite plan or object for the day. It has been cool and grey. Joe and I have talked and this afternoon we went over to my house and fixed the lightning rod on my outside studio which had become detached at the top. I received a note from the Treasury Department in relation to Maurices share in the Farragut prize fund in which it seems he did not share. Yesterday I sent to Lucy Swedenborgs "Heaven & Hell" by mail.
