Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 7, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Dec 7, 1880 Went out to Summit and spent the night with Whittredge. He has a large house and a very pleasant one. He must be more prosperous than I am to be able to afford it, but they inherited some money from her father. I couldnt help wondering what I should do if I had such an establishment to keep up. I am glad to see one Artist who can. It was a cold day the weather having changed. I had not seen Mrs. Whittredge since dear Gertrudes death and in talking with her I was overcome. Darling Gertrude, I am thinking of her all the time and I am very unhappy and discouraged.
