Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, March 5, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Went home Sunday by Wallkill Valley R. R. A break near Whiteport delayed us so that I did not reach home until nearly 5 o'clock. Remained over until today to vote at the city election. Had a little company at home last evening. Mr & Mrs. Taylor, John McEntee and his wife & Miss Delaprene. I return feeling sadly and depressed. My father has recovered and was able to go out to vote today but there is great anxiety at home and Maurice continues to spoil our home with his infernal temper and his selfishness. I can hardly endure it.
