Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 12, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, Nov 12, 1886 The weather was mild and grey this morning. Tom and I carried up the storm windows, the girls washed them and by dinner time I had them all up and the blinds fastened back. This afternoon I went over to my studio and prepared a number of boards for my little sketches. It rained towards evening and now 11 oclock it is snowing and the wind is rising. I wrote to Lucy at Fort Bridger and today I sent John his cap by mail registered and also three letters which came since he went away. Charlie has interested us greatly with a frank account of his relations with the rich widow. He does not seem attracted in spite of her wealth.
