Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, January 21, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Jan 21, 1890 I see by the paper that the State Prison Commission appointed to find a new location for the Sing Sing prison have recommended the purchase of Fairview, Capt Andersons place in Esopus for 37,500. It is not a pleasant idea to me. Began a little Winter, a recollection of a scene at Nyack Turnpike as I see it from the train. Went up to Dr. Patchins as usual. Came to my room early and wrote to Mrs. Darley and to Jas. Gifford to acknowledge the receipt of the painting materials he sent me.
