Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 29, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Mar 29, 1887 Bitterly cold again with high wind. Surely this has proven a typical March. I painted on my Shokan picture but do not get along very well. In the evening Calvert and I went to the Chickering Hall to hear Genl. Armstrong on the education of the Negro and the Indian. Genl. Gordon of Georgia was to have been present but was not. Dr. Hitchcock Choate, Willis James and Dr. Armitage spoke, but Genl Armstrongs was the most interesting. The colored quartette sang and there was a speech by a young Onondaga Indian and by an Omaha young woman, a sister of Bright Eyes. Afterwards we went around to the club. I presume Janette and Emily arrived at Rondout today.
