Feb. 3 – (Thurs.)
A.M. De-mounting the Liverpool sketch.
P.M. To Buffalo on various errands. “Song of the Cicada” to Mitchell’s, to market, to United Glazing Co., to Genesee pict. for frames, - at Anderson a bouquet of daffodils + blue iris for B.
Early evening – take Hank’s picture to him (The Green Pasture – 1940) – Peggy miserable with a cold. At 9:00 take a 1916 watercolor to Neeb’s (Poplar’s in July) – They were immensely pleased. Rev. Neeb told us the outcome of the special congregational meeting Thursday night. The tables were turned completely on Rev. Neeb detractors due to expert maneuvering on the part of Cliff Linders.
