Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 26, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, June 26, 1886 I picked some cherries this morning and then took my father out for a drive. We went to Rondout where I returned to Genl Sharpe the two volumes of the Spy his mother sent me several years ago. Then we drove up to Kingston and home. There have been fine skies all day and an occasional slight shower. I ought to have been upon some bare hill top sketching these fine skies all day. This afternoon Sara and I attended the Rev. Mr. Waters funeral at the Episcopal church in Kingston. There were very few people there, to our great surprise. He was pastor of this church for 20 years. The remarks made by the pastor from Orange were utterly commonplace and it seemed to me, without heart. I could not help realizing how soon one is forgotten.
