Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 9, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Nov 9, 1886 I met Mr. Childs the City engineer as agreed, at 9 30 this morning and he worked most of the day and gave me the grade of Chester St. so that now I can begin whenever I wish. I was with him a part of the time and took a memorandum of the points. Sara and I meanwhile put down the carpet in the sitting room and at 4 oclock drove out to Mrs. Costillos and engaged our Thanksgiving turkey and from there to Kingston to do some errands. It was cool riding. I wrote to Bowyer this evening asking him what he thought of my plan of advertising small sketches. I am not sure of it. Sara had a letter from Lucy written on the train and mailed at Decatur Ill. All had gone well since their adventure at Niagara but the weather there was cold and much as it is here. The snow has not all gone yet.
