October – On a Saturday, Sam spoke on “mental telegraphy” as a guest of William D. Whitney, a Yale professor, at Whitney’s home in New Haven. Sam gave his talk at a meeting of the New Haven Saturday Morning Club, a young ladies’ social and cultural group much like Hartford’s. Whitney’s daughter, Marian, was twenty [MTNJ 2: 359n12].

Sam inscribed William Wood’s General Conchology; or, a Description of Shells, etc. to: “Susie Clemens, Oct. 1881/ from Papa” [Gribben 784].
