Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 15, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Dec 15, 1874- It has been a cold day. The thermometer stood at 8 degrees this morning and is at the same point tonight. The Cornell laid up today but there has been no ice in the river here until today. Have painted all day on my drapery but do not succeed. Shall work at it again tomorrow. My father was much better today. Lucy went to New York today to be gone three or four days.
