Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Saturday, June 24, 1876, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday evening after we had all worked hard all day we went over to John McEntees to a little party. Thursday evening we had a little social gathering here. Dwight came from school to go home with his mother. They left for New York Friday. Gussie felt very badly at parting as we all did. She has been from home nearly five months. Last night we went down to Uncle Charles' to a social gathering. Sara went to the Centennial yesterday morning by the Powell. While I was painting the hall yesterday Jas. Smillie called. I dressed myself and took a short walk with him. He left by the evening boat. We have the dining room all finished and in order and it is very pretty and entirely satisfactory.
