Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 21, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Dec 21, 1886 Sara and I drove to Kingston to do some errands and to see Miss Forsyth about having Mr. Brace come here to be entertained tomorrow when he comes to attend the 10th anniversary of the Industrial Home and arranged that we take him. I left Sara at home on my return and drove down town. The sleighing is capital and the streets thronged with sleighs both in Kingston and Rondout. I got a note from Bray telling me he would renew my note coming due the 27th which takes off so much pressure. The sign for the Chester St. lots was finished and I sent Tom down after it intending to paint the letters today but it was not dry enough. I am anxious to get it up as many people are going there now. I went to my studio at noon and worked until after 3 finishing the little interior but began no new one. I wrote the titles on the back of most of the little sketches.
