Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 7, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Mar 7, 1881 Started for N. Y. at noon but at the Strand found the crossing was very treacherous and as the Norwich was to break a channel I concluded to wait until tomorrow. Took a walk out on the Common and wrote to Mary Gifford. The blue birds were singing on the hill today. There is still a great deal of snow in the cemetery. I was going in there but there was a funeral and I did not. The Norwich broke a track over the river this afternoon. It has been crossed on the ice since Jan. 3 and Maurice said we have had sleighing since Dec. 1. until a few days ago.
