Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 23, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Oct 23, 1889 We arrived at 6.20 fare $7.65 sleeper $2.00 and went directly to Youngs hotel where we had a good breakfast. Eastman left by the 8.30 trail B & A for N. Y. and I went to College Hill. I met Mr. Sawyer at the station on his way to Lynn to the Universalist Convention to be gone until Friday evening. He did not think we could go to Reading before Monday and so I gave up the trip, particularly as Mrs. Sawyer thought it too cold for him to go away from home. I found Gertrudes Aunt Emily (Mrs. Pierce) there and was glad to see her as I had never met her [before?]. She is about 80 and is a gentle, sweet person. She lives in Alton, Ill. and knows Mr. [Taylor?].
