Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 5, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Mar 5, 1886 Alice and I went in to Boston about noon. I called at Joe Warrens place to get him to lunch with us but he was out. Alice and I lunched at the Parker house and afterwards called on Annie & Fanny but they were out, Annie I think had gone to New York. Then Alice went to a symphony concert and I called on Mr. Bachelder but he was not in. I returned to College hill to get ready for the Decennial Appalachian dinner and George and I came back to Boston with Prof & Mrs. Fay, Mr. Preston & Mrs. Dearborn. The dinner was at the Parker house and about 120 sat down to it. Mrs. Dearborn sat below George and me. It was a very good dinner and there were no wines. Prof Fay introduced me to two or three ladies but I saw nothing of them afterward and I got the impression that strangers would have a poor time. They do not strike me as very social. We got back to College Hill before midnight and I left.
