Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 24, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Oct 24, 1889 I remained at Mr. Sawyers all day yesterday and left at 7 this morning to get the 8.30 train by Hoosac Tunnel. Had my breakfast in the station as I would not allow them to get my breakfast before I left. A cold morning but a most beautiful day. We reached Albany at 3.30. There are always by this route exasperating delays between Eagle Bridge and Albany but they run into the West Shore Station in Albany and got there in time for the 4 oclock train so that I was at home a little after 6. Sara had closed up the parlor today and made fire in the sitting room and we sat by it and talked until after 10. She has had visits from Mrs. Swan and Mrs. Warren both of whom were telegraphed for to go home on account of illness.
