Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 20, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, May 20, 1882 Came home by 11 oclock train for the summer. They were sorry at Marys to have me go and I left them all with regret for they are all very dear to me. I cant keep feeling badly even at these temporary partings. When I got home found Lucy, Girard and his wife had gone to N. Y. with the Mary Powell. We met her just this side of Yonkers with her flags all flying and the Eastman College students on board. I thought of Jansen and how he had looked forward to this day and now he lies in his grave.
