Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 6, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Nov 6, 1880 Breakfasted at Mary's and at 11 oclock took the train for New Haven. Still foggy but beautiful effects of brown color all the way with spots of brilliant reds and yellows. Weir met me at the depot. Went to his studio where we met H. K. Brown and all went to a restaurant for lunch. After lunch to his studio again to smoke and talk and towards evening to his home to dinner. Emma came down to dinner. Has only lately come down stairs although her boy is three months old. She looked very pretty and was very kind. Brown dined with us and spent the evening. He is here in the hands of a spiritual doctor. He is a firm believer in spiritualism. We talked about it and I heard some wonderful things, and much more interesting than I ever heard before on that subject. Weir and Mrs. Weir had been witnesses to some remarkable things which they confidentially related to me. It has interested me greatly.
