Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, January 8, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Freds wife came in with her nurse & child after breakfast and Mary also. I had a carriage and took them to the 11 o'clock train for Boston, got them a little separate room in the drawing room car and bade them good bye. I shall miss the dear little baby to whom I have grown greatly attached. I hope they will get home without any trouble. It is a mild grey day and very favorable for them. After I left them I went out and did dome errands. It is raining this evening. I dined at Mary's. Calvert came home from Albany where he has been to attend the reception at the new Capitol. I wrote to Mrs. Taylor this evening.
