Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Friday, January 16, 1874, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Jan 16, 1874- The wind blew a gale all night and it is very cold today. The river is full of ice again and the creek is frozen over, while yesterday a schooner sailed from the cement works with a load of cement. I spent a part of the day packing my trunk and getting things together for my departure. Julia and Lily came up to see my pictures before packing them and Julia remained to tea. Maurice came out to dinner looking pretty wretched.
