Monday, Dec 29, 1884 The weather is most depressing. Fog and gloom. Girard came down last night and staid at Mary's and was going back again this forenoon. I have painted all day on my snowy picture and am interested in it. Robbins came in and made an apology for leaving my name off the trustees ticket of the Century but I told him I was quite satisfied. Wilmurt does not send for my winter picture and I fear that chance is going to fail me. A letter from Charlie Osman telling me that he is getting the braid made and will send it to me in about a fortnight. Went to the club and talked with Perry & Bradford. Satterlee asked us to come to the Twelfth Night festival in costume but I have no heart for masquerading. Had a letter from Miss Nesmith. She is back with the Andersons and they are to remain there.
