Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 28, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Monday, Mar 28, 1881 Went to the studio in the forenoon. A gentleman called to get Weirs advice about a statue of Governor Buckingham for the State Capitol. After lunch we walked over to Mrs. Ewell's the medium and I had a sitting with her in Weirs presence. The usual unprepossessing surroundings which Weir however had prepared me for. Some very remarkable things were communicated of which I have made a record of all I could remember. I cant help being interested nor can I pretend to account for what was communicated. I am going again on the 21st of April.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
