Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 13, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Feb 13, 1887 Went over to my studio after breakfast and took down the curtains, unfolded the carpet of my N. Y. bed-room and took what I needed for my new bed room and taking them over home packed them in a big bundle to be sent to me Express. Sara put in a lot of things for Katy Struses people. In the afternoon I visited with my father and read to him. It was a bright winter day but a cold one. There is still good sleighing as the roads are solid ice. Sara and I sat by the sitting room fire after father had gone to bed, discussing all the various topics we had to go over after my fortnights absence.
