Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 5, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, Apr 5, 1890 Bright and windy. Went home by noon train. It seemed warm and pleasant there. The parlor which Sara has had cleaned was open and the doors into the hall and the sunshine poured in and made it very cheerful, as far as it could be with its sweet and tender memory of the voices that once filled it but which are silent now forever. The spring with all its budding and bursting life is the sad season to me. Sara and I sat in front of the fire and talked of those of our household who are gone.
