Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 20, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Dec 20, 1884 Went home by 4 oclock train. It was bitterly cold. Tom met me with a sleigh. Found all going on well at home. I have had no little anxiety this cold weather on my fathers account but he has been very comfortable. Last night the mercury at our house marked 16 degrees below zero. [in another's handwriting: "gee wiz!"]
