Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 4, 1882, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Sept 4, 1882 Took a walk up on the hill. The valley looked lovely and inviting after the rain, the hotel was most comfortable and altogether we were favorably impressed with the locality. Left at half past ten and came home by [?] Ridge & Marbletown. At Louis Beviers the creek looked very attractive and we have finally concluded to go there for a little while if he will take us. As we came up the hill here at home Sara was ahead of us on the wagon with Miss Noxon, Miss Gage and Mrs. Butler who had just come from Lake Mohonk. They dined with us and they and Calvert went down on the 5.40 train. My father went to Newburgh on the day boat and came up by the Powell much pleased with his little trip. A letter from Booth from Heidelberg. Wrote to him before I went to bed.
