Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 18, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Apr 18, 1886 Went home by morning train. A most charming day the still river lying in a dreamy Indian summer haze affording lovely pictures. My father came down and sat on the back porch where he was too warm so that we retired to the shaded front porch. Wrote Lucy sending her a copy of Lauras offensive letter to Sara and advised her to send it to Laura and to tell her frankly how she regarded it, that it would be most unwise for her to come to Rondout until she made a full and sincere apology for it. Even then I told her I did not think Sara would want to see her and I certainly would not forgive her until she did that much. Wrote to Lily French about the flats in the annex to the 18th St. apartments and to Tom McEntee, from whom I had a letter telling me he thought Mr. Jansens bill a reasonable one.
