Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 12, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, July 12, 1880 A letter from Sara today written at Fort Halleck last Monday giving us an account of her and Jamies journey. Had no trouble and was surprised at the ease with which it was accomplished. Telegraphed to Church I would go up in the 11 o'clock train. When I reached Kaatskill Station found my telegram had gone to him only 20 minutes before. Waited half an hour until they sent down for me. Found them both looking badly. Church with rheumatism. Mrs. Carnes was there. Came back by evening train. A telegram came from Dr. Otis saying he would pass the night with them. Met him at the station. We had a hard rain and I walked up home in the rain but welcomed it nevertheless. A letter from Mr. Chickering delighted with his picture and cordially inviting me to come and visit him at his country place near Boston any time between now and November.
