Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 26, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, July 26, 1890 It rained very hard most of the night and was very dubious this morning. Still we had our breakfast a little early and then went up to the W. S. Station to go on an excursion to Lake George. I bought tickets for Sara and myself and we waited until long past the time for the train when as it seemed probable, that on account of the bad weather, the excursion was abandoned, our money was refunded and we came home. I saw by the paper later that a slide had occurred at Newburgh which detained all trains until afternoon. As I rather expected the weather cleared and proved one of the finest possible days for an excursion. Mr. Cross and his daughter Helen called this afternoon. I lent him "Am[?] Journal". They are going on their annual vacation on Monday. John Forsyth drove up just before sunset with Mrs. Miller and her two daughters, Miss Miller and Mrs. Chadwick.
