Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 14, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Feb 14, 1886 Not yet clear, but warm and spring like with great freshets in all parts of the country. The Norwich has gone down the creek and lies fast in the ice near the light house. When I came up on Saturday I saw a horse and sleigh come across at West Point. Took this occasion to read Mrs. Stones paper and to write some of my impressions. Sat with my father a part of the time and read to him from the Leader and the Sunday Tribune which he enjoyed. After dinner in the evening Sara and I by invitation went down and spent the evening with the Cantines, etc.
