Saturday, Mar 26, 1881 Went to Reichardts to see the pictures. Boughtons an early one "Comin Thru the Rye" not good. I accepted the $275. Went to New Haven by 3 o'clock train. Beard came in the car and we sat together. I was much entertained by his quaint conversation. Weir met me at the station. Beard went on further to visit his wife. Went to Weirs studio and to see his large head of the Woolsey he is modeling which looked very promising. Always a pleasant welcome from his wife. Her niece Clara Grable was there.
