Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday September 3, 1873, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday September 3, 1873- My father and mother went to the camp meeting at Neely town on the Walkill Valley R.R. I had one of my head aches but managed to get over it by nine o'clock. I find cayenne pepper taken internally helps me. Gertrude received a letter from Mrs. Church from Cold Springs Harbor L.I. in which she says she is coming home on Wednesday and seems anxious to have us come to visit them. In the evening came a letter from Church in which he says he has received my letter and wants us to come next Monday. I am in a quandary and wrote to Whittredge to ask him how he finds the material out at Pine Hill. I am afraid if I go to Church's he will want to roam about and I will spend the little I have put by for my fall sketching and not get much out of it. I shall want to hear from Whittredge before I decide what to do.
