Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 9, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Nov 9, 1889 Down town in the morning. Wrote Kenyon & Sharpe that if the releases were not sent today they had better write to Booths lawyer on Monday. I cant account for the delay. I took the 2.30 train for Albany to visit Bailey on Sunday. It was a grey day and had rained hard in the morning. I improved the forenoon by doing many things. Arrived at Albany Bailey met me at the station and we went to his office in State St. He is the Collector of the port. After a little we walked up towards his house, past the Capitol and stopped a little while at his club the Fort Orange and then to his house where I was cordially met by his family, his wife, his two daughters and his son. His eldest daughter is a beautiful girl of 31 and his younger son and daughter are twins 18 years old. We had tea and spent a very pleasant evening and had some games of cards.
