Monday, Nov 10, 1884 Charlie and Laura went away by the 11.55 train. They are to be in N. Y. until Friday and then leave for home. Laura was much better than when she came. Mr. Wells wrote me that he could not say when the alterations to my room would be made but that if I came down and saw the contractor I could probably arrange to have it done when it would be most convenient to me. I shall go down tomorrow. A letter from the agent of the New Orleans exposition telling me he had got my Clouds from Weir and I sent him a blank with the title, price etc ($2000.) Sara had a letter from Mrs. Weir inviting us there. My father, Sara, little Girard and I drove over and called at Capt. Andersons this afternoon. He leaves for Santa Barbara this evening. I gave him a letter I got from Phil Johnson today regarding his property there, but he told me he was going to see about a plan he had made an offer for.
