Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 11, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, June 11, 1884 Still cool and cloudy--perfectly comfortable in the city. Spent the forenoon attending to affairs and about noon dressed myself and went over to attend Julias wedding at 1 oclock. The rooms looked very beautifully with a profusion of flowers. The ceremony was performed by Mr. Nichols of New Haven a friend of Harrys an Episcopal clergyman. There were present only the immediate families Calvert, Mary, Bowyer, Downing, Marion, Mr & Mrs. Donaldson, Mr & Mrs. Nichols, Annie Norton and Girards wife who came down on the Powell. It struck me as the most sensible wedding I ever attended from its simplicity. After the marriage a nice lunch with wine was served from the dining room by Downing and Bowyer when Julia and Harry departed. It was only known to the initiated that they went to the Old Mountain House. I remained to tea and spent the evening with them.
