Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, January 28, 1875, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Yesterday I painted a little winter picture with a twilight sky I saw a week or more ago. Today I packed my pictures and painting materials in two boxes and sent them to New York by express. After dinner I took the tram and took my mother, Mrs. Davis, Lucy & Jamie and the baby for a ride. We intended to take a long ride but it began to snow very hard after we started so we went up to Eddyville crossed the bridge and came home by Capt. Andersons and Port Ewen, having had a charming ride and seen beautiful snowy effects.
