Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Saturday, June 28, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Breakfasted in my room with Lucy and Andrews. Went out and ordered Emmas knife. Eastman called to tell me they will go to Rondout today. Very hot day. Went down to see Jake Sharp. Found him in his office and very glad to see me. He is very shaky and thinks he grows more so, but looks well and suffers no pain. I took a letter I wrote to Gertrude from Annapolis in 1861 in which I describe a visit to Jake, and read it to him.
