Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 27, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution
Thursday, May 27, 1886 A grey day with indications of a storm and very undecided about going to N. Y. for our excursion to Highlands tomorrow. We sat by a fire all day. However towards evening the weather seemed a little more promising and I went down to N. Y. by evening train. At Haverstraw Edith Cook, Miss Pychouska and a Miss Thompson got on the train having been on an excursion to West Point. Arrived in N. Y. I went directly to the Century where I saw Calvert and also met Fitch who urged me to breakfast with him next day.< Previous Entry | Next Entry >
