Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 30, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, July 30, 1880 Another cool delightful day with fine skies. Went to Rondout to get the wheel fixed. Found it not so serious as I thought. Commenced an autumn picture this forenoon from one of my Shokan studies with a sky something like we have been having for a couple of days. A telegram from Calvert saying he cannot come up this week. Maurice has been gone ever since Monday afternoon and we do not know where he is. I have been reading some of Gertrudes letters in 1875. He was in a dreadful condition and she was taking care of him. I wonder if he ever thinks of how much she did for him. While I read her letters I seem to be with her. I wish I could dream of her. I never have except but for a moment. It would be so sweet to dream of seeing her.
