Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 3, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Nov 3, 1882 It was cold last night with the first hard frost of the season and has been cool and frosty all day. After dinner Sara and I (and Park) went over to the top of Hussey Hill returning over the bed of the West Shore rail road. We had a lovely walk. The men are preparing to erect the great bridge, and quantities of timber and iron are being landed. Maurice came to the table yesterday and is in a most abject and battered condition. I think with each debauch I see a renewed loss of what little moral sense he had left.
