Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 28, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Nov 28, 1886 Bright day. After breakfast Calvert, Mary and I went over to the cemetery and out to the "View"[.] The crust was frozen hard and very slippery. We came back to Chester St. where Mary left us and we continued on to the swamp near the Flat-bush road where we were on Friday. I made a little sketch, partly in water colors of a subject I saw when we were there before. It was pretty cold and we came home by another way across the hill and through Ludlums woods to Chester St. The winter landscape fascinates me and seems much more pictorial than the summer.
