Friday, Apr 16, 1880 Wednesday Gifford, his wife, Mary and I went up to New Haven by the 11 a.m. train to visit the Weirs, and returned yesterday in the noon. The weather was very warm. Weir took us to lunch, a very pleasant drive to the shore of the [?]. Yesterday we visited the college and the Art School. Mrs. French and Lily were away from home. I went to the dinner of the G. B. Club in 23rd St. last night. There was a very full attendance. A letter from Sara last night and one from Lucy this morning. Painted most of the day but have felt very sad and my thoughts have been with dear Gertrude. Called on the Bachelders this evening at the Coleman house and on Fred Sawyer and his wife. Came to my room and wrote to Mrs. Weir.
