Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 29, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Nov 29, 1886 Calvert left this morning after a very pleasant visit which he evidently greatly enjoyed. When I returned from taking him to the train I built a fire in my studio and went to work on my Winter picture of Saturday which I improved. I am learning something about painting snow. I left work a little before 11 to take Sara down to the ferry boat on her way to New York. Mary is going to stay here and take care of my father while she is here for a few days. Julia Dillon and Aunt Christina went down also. I [?] them in a carriage on my return. This afternoon I painted two small winter sketches from my recent notes. The weather was warmer today, and the snow is melting.
