Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 28, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Aug 28, 1882 Calvert & Downing left by 7.20 train. Taking them to the ferry I broke the spring of the top wagon and had to leave it and walk home. Stretched some water color paper and made the stretchers. My mother received a letter from Mrs. Goetchins relative to some genealogical information. My father, mother Sara and I went for a ride. We took Julia to the train for High Falls and then drove out on the Saugerties road crossing over at Aunt Katrines Lake road to the Flat-bush road along the river and thro' the strand home. It has been a lovely day and the ride very pleasant. Nannie took tea with us and Sade and I went home with her. A letter from Weir. Wrote to Mrs. Goetchins to have her cousin & daughter come up tomorrow.
