Thursday, Aug 24, 1882 I was working down in the shop today fixing my sketching umbrella when John Weir arrived from Hudson where he spent the night at the Giffords on his way from the Adirondacs. He spent the day with us and went to Garrisons by the 4 o'clock train. It has been a lovely day and I enjoyed his visit very much. We took a walk out on the Downs. He and his wife are to come and make us a visit.
