Friday, Apr 6, 1888 Beautiful spring day. I took my mothers photograph which Lucy sent me to be enlarged and copied. Have been painting all day on my little late Autumn and hope to get a nice little picture. I feel like painting but want to see Nature. A letter from Janette [asking?] [?] receipt of the Spanish [?] I sent her. I wrote to her this afternoon. Van Derlip called today about my insurance which before my sale was $10,000. I finally proposed to make it $7,000 now and he is to give me a new policy in place of the old one.
