Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 17, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Jan 17, 1886 Went home by the 9.30 train. It was a bright and lovely winter day and I greatly enjoyed the beauty of the winter landscape. I saw a beautiful effect just after leaving Newburgh looking back towards the Highlands. People were skating on the river at Haverstraw and Ice boats were seen every where above Newburgh. Tom met me with the sleigh although there is little sleighing. Found my father looking better than usual. Had a very nice letter from Dr Sawyer. In the evening Sara and I called on the Cantines and afterward on Nannie. John had gone to N. Y. Gertrude Tremper is visiting there. We had a cup of tea and a chat about the dinner at Genl. Sharps.
