Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Saturday, November 17, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

My father and went to the Methodist church today. Mr. Terry preached an excellent, practical sermon from the first Psalm. He strikes me as a very superior man. Walter North was there and on our way home we stopped in at Mr. Norths to see a crayon portrait of George. Mrs. North gave me a daguerrotype of Carrie Ferguson for Gussie. It rained a little when we came up the hill. Maurice, John Andrews and I went over to John McEntees before tea. It rained quite hard when we came home. This afternoon I wrote to Laura, to Booth and to Ben Butler. My eyes trouble me so that I cannot use them much at night.
