Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Thursday, October 6, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday Oct. 6- After getting some of my things together, went up to Churchs by 11 oclock train. Walked up from the station. A cool, lovely day. They were all about the place but soon Mrs. Church came with young Mrs. Osborne who with her husband are spending a day or two there, having come from Lake Mohawk by carriage yesterday. They were married only a couple of weeks ago. Church did not come in until long after lunch so I concluded to stay until evening train. Sent telegram from there to Eastman to meet me in Boston Saturday. Church looks very feeble and broken. Was in the Maine woods only four days when he was telegraphed for on account of the illness of his sister. Remained until after dinner and came home by 6 oclock train. Found a letter here from Boynton who had made all arrangementsWrote to Mrs. Green of Chicago and gave her an order for my two pictures at the close of the Exposition. She came to see me in N.Y.
