Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 22, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Jan 22, 1882 Cleared and is a little colder. Spent most of the day in my room writing. Sent a long letter to Booth at Galveston in reply to what he asked me about doing something for Downing. Wrote also to John Andrews, Royal Reed, Alice and to Jamie who is very homesick. I thought so much of dear Gertrude as I sat in my room and looked off over the snowy landscape. My whole visit had a feeling of tender sadness about it and was so strongly in contrast with my life here in town.
