Charles Burchfield, Journals, October 30, 1947

Sunday, October 30, 2016

Oct. 30 – (Thurs.)

M. [Martha] got rejection slip from P.A., I felt bad for her + blamed myself.

Working in studio on book-like folders for early (1915-16) water-colors, which I intend to use for my diaries too[i].
Ran out of chip-board in mid P.M. Had Art drive me in, to Ailing-Cory + get more. Also got some 30 x 40 mounting board.

Evening – raw and chilly – drizzle and wind from N.E.

Reading a mystery by Agatha Christie.                    Treats of Tricks girls (13 of them) Pal.
