Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 27, 1889, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Oct 27, 1889 It rained in the night and has rained all day gently. The earth is soaked and steaming and the trees are bare and forlorn. I sat by a nice wood fire in the parlor and read and wrote. Girard and the children came over and spent a good part of the forenoon and Mary came over with them in the afternoon. Dwight was resplendent in a new suit with six pockets as he observed. I have looked over all the Tribunes which Sara kept for me during my absence and read what I wished to. I have written to Mr. Hubbard the Maine map man, to Alice and to Mary and a note to Calvert accompanying the two deeds I am to send him tomorrow, Dewey's & Norths. It has been a quiet, restful day at home and I have been content and happy.
