Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 14, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Nov 14, 1886 The wind has blown a gale from the N. W. all day but it has not been very cold. We still sit in the parlor where Charlie has written to the Amsterdam widow telling her that he cannot decide yet and we have discussed the situation with great sincerity and frankness on his part. He is an honorable man with correct instincts and intentions. He told us this evening of his sons unhappy married life. He, Sara and I went down to Johns after dinner and called on Julia Dillon who returned from Europe on Friday. Charlie and I have discussed my proposition of grading Chester St which I begin tomorrow and this evening we walked over there and looked at it. He thinks it a wise undertaking. I wrote to Miss Nesmith.
