[Chicago—Tuesday, 5 October 1875]

Tuesday. Rain. Made bed—put up room.

Went to exhibition of pictures—saw those of Shirlaw a new man who seems to have studied in the same school as Duveneck—not so good I think though earnest and in the right direction but I feel the machinery more than in Duveneck.

Met Col. Hay who is working on his life of Lincoln and living at Cleveland, Ohio—a Mr. Bartlett came to dine—a Mr. Gordon to tea. J. lectured on Cheerfulness on the West Side though the floods opened and lightning and thunder prevailed. I sat and read to poor little Rob.
