Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, March 19, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, Mar 19, 1890 With only predictions of fair weather it was snowing furiously when I went over to breakfast with the wind from N. E. but not cold. I have been at work on a water color, a Winter from a sketch I painted a few years ago. I had a request for a Water Color from Burlington for an exhibition at the University of Vermont. I dont know whether I shall succeed with it. It had stopped snowing when I went over to dinner. Six or eight inches must have fallen. Mrs. Weld dined with us. She has secured a pension of $30 a month for her husbands service in the war. She and Mary went to hear Miss Edwards lecture on Egypt. I came to my room early.
