Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 4, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Sunday, July 4, 1886 A hot day. Downing and Jones took a ride towards evening but I preferred to keep quiet. McKobbin and his wife and Mrs. Jansen Anderson called. They came up on the Powell last night and described the crowd and the feeling of apprehension on board. At Rondout two ladies were pushed overboard from the dock but were rescued. McKobbin spoke most feelingly of dear Gertrude whom he always greatly admired, and she always regarded him as a kind and excellent man. It is a great satisfaction to me to hear her so kindly spoken of and remembered.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
