Thursday, Dec 11, 1884 My cheerful old Franklin was taken out of my studio and sent up to Rondout with some other things this morning. I shall miss it very much and never expect to be so comfortable here again. The new stove was to be here at 11 oclock but as it had not arrived at 2 I sent a messenger to tell them to send it up at once. It came about 4 o'clock but I had to look for a man to put it up which took some time and I did not start a fire in it until 6. I cant tell how it is going to burn but fear not very well. Major Wilkinson called this afternoon but it was cold in my room the stove not having arrived [?] spent the evening in my studio.
