Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 29, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Apr 29, 1889 I came down on the Powell and witnessed the Naval [parades?] of the Centennial of the Inaugural. I was disinclined to come but I would not have missed it for any thing. The day came off fair and breezy with fine skies rendering it a spectacle to be remembered for a life time.
