Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 11, 1888, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Apr 11, 1888 Calvert came over to see the picture of Lake Placid he and Mary are to give to Lila Brace as a wedding present. He was entirely pleased with it. I went up to Wilmurts and arranged to have it boxed and sent tomorrow. Then I went and called on Lang and had a talk with him about his book. I lunched with Mary and Sara and then we went up to the Bloomingdale Asylum by the Third Av. L. road and the Boulevard cars. We saw Dr. Noyes who took us all over the building. We saw poor old Mrs. Winter. She knew us but seemed dull and dazed and had changed greatly. From here we walked over to Grants tomb and then down to the Cable road at 125th street which took us clear past the High bridge and the new iron bridge they are building above. We came back by the Third Av. L. road in time for dinner having had a most interesting afternoon. It was fine weather, not too warm, with a brisk West wind and fine skies. In the evening Sara, Julia Dillon and I went up to the Academy.
