Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Monday, August 25, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

A rainy day. Mr. Sawyer left for Clinton. I had a charming letter from Emma French. Painted some morning-glories in my picture with the figure and vase and this afternoon painted on Gertrudes picture over at my studio. A year ago today we started on our lovely trip to Minnewaska and Mohonk which dear Gertrude so thoroughly enjoyed. It rained that day too but it cleared in the afternoon and we drove to High Falls. Have written to Emma French and told her I would send her picture to Sugar Loaf if there is an express office there and if not to Chester. Attended a school meeting at the school house which was adjourned to Wednesday evening. James Diamond was buried today.
