Jervis McEntee Diaries

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, January 6, 1876, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Went home on Friday last feeling quite ill and remained there until this morning having been threatened with an illness which I think I escaped by remaining quietly there and under Dr. Sara's care. The weather Saturday and Sunday was something remarkable. Showers drifted along the mountains Sunday and the air was like April rather than January. I enjoyed being at home. The winter is delightful there and every time I go home I renew the present impression of domestic peace in a winter home. Found on my return a letter from Lambdin full of the right sort of feeling in many respects, regarding the Academy.
