Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, December 6, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Dec 6, 1886 Still very cold but clear with high N. wind. River full of ice and navigation about closed. Mary went home. I drove her up to the 11 55 train and then drove down town for the mail. Mr. Tougue came to see me this afternoon his article of agreement and his deed differing a little. I told him I would do what was right and would consult my lawyer about it. I accordingly drove up in the cutter to see Kenyon. He said there was no need of doing any thing but if necessary I could give him a [quit?] claim deed of the property opposite to the middle of the street. Kenyon was holding court in his office and I could hardly see across the room for the tobacco smoke. He had his hat on lecturing to arguments but got up and came into his private office to attend to me. I made a sketch today looking down on the town with an immense column of steam from the locomotive. Wrote to Whittredge this evening. The wind is blowing a gale and there is a prospect of snow.
