Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 23, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, June 23, 1886 Rained hard all day. I went down to Pokeepsie by the 4.35 train to visit Robt. Wilkinson as agreed. Found Mary Gifford and her father there. He will be 90 years old next month and yet he played two games of backgammon with his grand-children in the evening. The children were all at home. They are an affectionate and interesting family and I had, as I always have a delightful visit. Miss Irene Weir came in the evening. Robert told me her sister was giving them great uneasiness and anxiety again. This will be a fresh anxiety to John Weir. Robert and I sat and talked until 11 oclock.
