Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 12, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Aug 12, 1889 The same perfect weather, toward evening a most rich effect of sunset light. I went down town shortly after breakfast and the day being favorable resumed my picture of the ferry. The sloop had gone off the ways and a small steamer lay in front of an unfinished part of the picture, but I did as well as I could and finished about noon, leaving my sketching traps down there as I may go there to make another picture. On my way home I was told Palmer Canfield had had a stroke of paralysis. I saw him on my way down going toward his store as well apparently as ever. I overtook Wood this forenoon on my way down and told him that I would like to talk with him some day when I had time on the matter of Calvert St. that I feared he had an impression I intended disregarding his rights in the matter, which I had no idea of doing. He was very polite and said he did not suspect me of any such thing. I told him I was engaged this forenoon but would see him soon.
