Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 24, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Oct 24, 1886 A beautiful Autumn day. The maple in front of the house and Gertrudes tree are just at the height of their color having remained green until within a few days. We have all sat in the parlor with a fire in the Franklin as there is a coolness in the air. It is pleasant for us all to be together again. John, Lucy and Sedgwick, Mary, Sara and I. Sedgwick is a most beautiful and lovable boy and I wish he were to be here all winter. Sara is going to N. Y. tomorrow with Nannie who is going to spend a month at Dr. Taylors.
