Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 11, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Nov 11, 1889 I came home by the 9.50 train and came near being left. I jumped on the train just as it had started. I had a very pleasant visit and I hope they enjoyed me as much as I did them. I like Bailey very much. He is frank and sensible and cordial. I urged him to come and spend next Sunday with me, but he thought he might go to Washington and would take his wife with him. As soon as I got home I sat down and wrote him to come and bring his wife with him. Sara has made an arrangement to take Mr & Mrs. Reid for the winter after Dec. 1st. They proposed it and we know of no one who could be less objectionable. They are to have my room and pay $20 pr. week including heating. Sara will not be alone now and will have such companionship as she likes, which is a satisfaction to me.
