Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 16, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, May 16, 1886 A splendid, brilliant morning. I walked about the pretty village for half an hour before breakfast, and afterwards we all walked out up along the Saw Kill to his house which we went over again, then out to the Falls and back along the stream. The place was charming under the brilliant sky. Had our lunch and went out later down to the river and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Eastman told a funny story of a dream he had in which he climbed over a rocking chair thinking it was a fence and broke it all to pieces. The hotel is most excellent being kept by one of Delmonicos cooks who personally cooks every thing. We had an excellent dinner and sat and talked until late.
