Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 3, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Mar 3, 1886 To the astonishment and disgust of every body the wind keeps on its endless rampage and the streets are enveloped in clouds of dust. I awoke with a dense smoke in my room having put on some soft coal in stead of my own coal. After breakfast went to David Andersons and got the photographs of dear Gertrude and Maurice which he has been copying for me. Found a letter from Alice saying they are all well and anxious to see me so I have determined to go on to Boston tomorrow. Went up to the Grand Central depot and got my ticket and seat in drawing room car for the 8 o'clock train tomorrow morning by the shore road. Stopped for my andiron I left to have mended but it had to be made new and was not done, then to my studio where I found Eastman waiting for me and the servant having every thing topsy turvy cleaning it. After Eastman went put my picture for Auchincloss in its new frame which came this morning and made out my list for the Academy and did a lot of small duties.
