Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Monday, June 2, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Came down in the Powell Sara bringing Jansen and me down to the boat. It has been a hot day but the sail down was cool and refreshing. A card from Weir urging me to come up on Thursday. Attended the wedding of Mr. Boardman and Mrs. Yulin. It was suffocatingly hot. The bride is an enormously stout woman but she looked very nicely. Mr McKibbin and his wife were there, all the Boardman girls and Ed. Alice took me up to see the presents. My picture was there, a present from Mr. & Mrs. Butterfield and I think was the most valuable of all the presents. Certainly I would rather have had it than anything else I saw. I came away early and came to Marys for a while and then to my room. It rained and I was damp and hot. Found a nice letter from Lily French and wrote her a letter. She had got her fan and was greatly pleased with it. Gifford was in today and said he would go to New Haven on Thursday so I wrote to Weir.
