Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Monday, August 24, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Aug 24, 1874- Sent my picture "November" 12x16 to S. A. Coale Jr. St. Louis in Express. Wrote to Whittredge. Vaux went back to N.Y. Wrote to my tailor, boot maker and to Snedecor for colors. A lovely cool day like many others this delightful summer. In the afternoon we rode up to St. Remi and called on Mr. Hasbrouck & Mrs. Lillie & her children. It is an interesting old fashioned place and they all seem to enjoy it. Mr. Hasbrouck is 83 years old and has seen much trouble yet he is hale and apparently happy and interested in all about him. On our way home we called at Capt. Andersons but they had gone out riding.
