Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 8, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Sept 8, 1886 Andrews who did not come home last night, we supposed had gone to N. Y. He came home early this morning in a condition to give us great anxiety. A telegram came for him to come down tomorrow. I read it to him and begged him not to go off the hill today which he promised not to do. He did step away however and I dont know where he went, but returned after a little through the garden just after Sedgewick had started down town to look for him. All this revives my experiences with poor Maurice and shows me what anxieties Lucy has. The day has been most dreary and sad to me. A hot South wind has blown and every thing has seemed about as discouraging as possible. Sara went up to Mrs. Hess' to a tea party taking Mrs. Cantine with her.
