It has rained today and I have painted on my Paire Tree picture changing the tone of it. I had a number of callers.  Mr. Nobel, Weir, Whittredge and others.  This evening directly after dinner I went up to see Kensett who I heard was ill.  I was greatly alarmed to find he is seriously ill with Pneumonia.
