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

Thursday, Sept 9, 1886 Sedgwick and Andrews went to N. Y. this morning. I drove them to the station. Worked in my studio most of the forenoon and advanced my picture. Was going there again in the afternoon but discovered that the bath room cistern which we cleaned and refilled on Monday was empty. I changed my clothes and went down and looked for the leak and cemented it but whether effectively I cannot tell. Something of this nature I expect now almost every day. Lucy, John, Jamie and Sedgwick all returned from N. Y. this evening. Bowyer won the International Cup in the canoe race yesterday. Lucy was present with Calvert and Mary.
