Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 16, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Mar 16, 1890 Snowed in the night but melted when the sun rose. I have a restless and somewhat depressed feeling. I think of dear Gertrude and long for her so often. It would seem so different if she were here. In the evening Sara and I went down to Cantines as Miss Carrie wished we would, and called on her "Mama" as she calls her. She seems a very [vivacious?] and interesting woman and Mrs Cantine had so great an affection for her and always spoke so warmly of her as does Carrie that we were glad to meet her and she seemed equally pleased to meet us, of whom she had heard so much. Mrs. Cantine used to stay she thought she must be very much like Gertrude. Perhaps she may be. I could easily think so as she has a fine carriage, an agreeable manner and her step daughters say is most amiable. It grew colder in the afternoon.
