Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 24, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Sept 24, 1882 The rain has cleared and a brisk north wind blew this morning but it has been an eventful day. Maurice came home this morning very much intoxicated. He came on the Powell to Pokeepsie where she was obliged to lie by on account of the storm. I would not allow him to come to the breakfast table and he was in a great rage and talked outrageously. I dont know what is to be done with him. He asked my pardon afterwards but I told him I would talk to him when he was in a fit condition to understand me. I think he is somewhat repentant, but I am tired of these scenes. Lucy & Andrews, Jamie & Sedgwick left for Benecia[?] on the 6 P.M. train from N. Y. Sara and I went over with them on the 5.20 boat (the last one) and staid with them until the train came along at 8.44. It will be lonely here without them and we will miss the children. Great changes may occur before we meet again and I am always saddened by these partings.
