Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 23, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Feb 23, 1884 Went home. It had rained nearly all day but grew colder and snowed when I left. Calvert went in the same train but I did not see him until we arrived at Kingston. It was pretty cold when we arrived there but the storm was over. Found Sade had sent Annie Burns away and got a little German girl, Francis, in her place. I was sorry to have Annie go for she was a smart active child but with Gipsey [sic] blood in her veins and proved too hard for Sara to manage. Calvert and I went down to John McEntees after supper. Sara was going but Gussie had one of her attacks of fainting and she gave up going. I am troubled about Gussie. These attacks suggest paralysis to me. We had a pleasant time at Johns. Esther & Joanna were there beside themselves.
