Tuesday Jan. 14

Last night as I was taking care of little Sarah, I happened to look out of the window in the direction of Parkersburg and saw a fire which reddened the sky and water.  I suppose it was a burning building.  Maggie Voris here to dinner.  Miss Mary Ainsworth called.  I finished India ink drawing, "The Watering Place," by Rosa Bonheur.  Kate received a letter from Clara and James.

Peggy's comments:

In 1855, the wood engraving  "The Watering Place" by Rosa Bonheur appeared in "The Illustrated London News".

Clara Walton was Julia's younger sister (and Kate's aunt).  James was Clara's husband.
