Diary of Sarah Connell Ayer : Andover and Newburyport, Massachusetts; Concord and Bow, New Hampshire; Portland and Eastport, Maine (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Diary of Sarah Connell Ayer: Andover and Newburyport, Massachusetts; Concord and Bow, New Hampshire; Portland and Eastport, Maine It has not been' possible to trace the portrait of Sarah Connell, which is said to have pictured her as a child, wearing red shoes. So the only description of her is that of a niece of Dr. Ayer, who said from her childish recollection, Mrs. Ayer was a very gloomy person, and she thought, a brunette. There are portraits of Captain Connell and Aunt Sarah New man, said to be by C. W. Peale. Captain Connell is in uniform and holds a spy glass. He is of medium complexion, and has a somewhat sentimental expression, and not specially strong features. Aunt Newman on the contrary, has well marked features, large melancholy dark eyes, and wears a monumental cap Captain and Mrs. Ayer were older when their portraits were painted. He has a Roman nose, and a very high color, while she wears a smaller cap than Aunt Newman, and looks as if she must have had a sense of humor, and a tolerance of the weaknesses of humanity. In Volume 3, 154 of the 189 pages have been omitted. They contained long abstracts of Dr. Payson's sermons, notes of prayer meetings, etc., and a long account of Mrs. Connell's last illness and death.
