Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, February 24, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Feb 24, 1890 I went down town after breakfast. It was very warm and sloppy and rained a little. It was very hard work for me to walk back up the hill. Sedgwick remained up until today. He said he had got all his lessons and it would not put him back. His rest was a great comfort to him for it seems like home to him. We came away together by the 4.05 train. Sara was sorry to have us come as we were. It was sloppy and foggy. When we got to Weehawken the ferry boat did not leave for more than half an hour on account of the dense fog and then we were nearly an hour on the river trying to find the slip. Twice we were near enough to see the lights but lost it again. We were all greatly relieved when we at least reached it. Sedgwick went to Marys and I to the Century where I got some supper after 9 oclock and then came to my room which seems doubly lonely after the cheerful home.
