Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 23, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Feb 23, 1890 This is Lucys silver wedding, and Sara Sedgwick and I each wrote her. It was cold last night and the ice men feel their hopes revived but it grew rapidly warmer and in the evening the mercury was above the freezing point and the sleighing all gone. I remained at home all day for I found no place so satisfying. I am not able to take the walks I once enjoyed and now find my satisfactions at home. John and Julia came up and spent the evening. Mary brought the baby Jansen over while we were at dinner. I have not seen him since Xmas and he has grown very winning.
