Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 25, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Apr 25, 1886 Easter Sunday. We had lettuce and asparagus from our garden. The cherry trees are in full bloom. The hall stove was taken down last Monday and poor Sara is tired out cleaning house and doing all she has to do. After breakfast Calvert and I went for a walk. We went out towards the Roa-tina, struck across the fields and through the woods where dear Gertrude and I gathered the last ferns we ever gathered and came out on the road on the Sandy plateau beyond the landslide beyond Steep Rocks. Then we went to see the slide at Terrys brick-yard stopping to buy a shad on the way. From there we came home past the spring and through the woods reaching the Point road where the Ulster & Delaware crosses it. It was a grey cool day and we greatly enjoyed our walk. After dinner I wrote to Miss Nesmith who is in Baltimore and to Alice.
