Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 8, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Feb 8, 1886 A soft beautiful warm day. We went for a sleigh ride Sara, Mary, Mary Gifford, Dwightie and I out on the Flat bush road, across to the Saugerties road and to Kingston to do some errands. The sleighing was about done about the town. Another warm day 55 degrees at sunset. I went up to the 2.25 train and met Mrs. Tuckerman by appointment. She has not been in Rondout for nearly 30 years. She and Mary talked of their school days. Mrs. Kenyon, Will Kenyons young widow called to see Sara and I saw her fairly for the first time. She was very attractive to me. We had dinner at 5 and I came away with the 6 20 train. I found at my studio both pictures sent to Auchincloss and suppose something is wrong as usual. Notes from Mrs. Custer, Miss Nesmith, and others and a Ms. from Mrs. Stone. Went to bed tired about midnight. Tickets for a box from Mrs. Thurber for tonight too late.
