Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 14, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Nov 14, 1889 I went over and breakfasted with Mary. Marion and Sedgwick were there, Sedgwick very much changed and growing to look like Jamie. I saw Calvert later. He looks badly and unless he takes a rest I do not know what may happen to him. I talked with him about my buying the homestead and he assented to the proposition John made and which I accepted. I went to the bank and deposited $1550 which North and Dewey paid me (less $50). Then to [Getman Gollamores?] and arranged with them to go to my studio and pack my china etc to send up home. I lost the 11.15 W. S. train but caught the 11.45 Hudson River. Brevoort rode with me as far as Yonkers where he is building a home. He wanted me to stop over and dine with him but I wanted to get home. He spoke very discouragingly of the prospects of the artists and expressed my feeling of an entire lack of enthusiasm. Got home and found Sara had gone to Kingston to Mrs. Livingstons to tea.
