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

Wednesday, Mar 26, 1890 The day came off so fine with a brisk N. W. wind and not cold that I decided to go out to Summit to see Whittredge which I did by the 1.30 train. I missed my way after I reached Summit and went astray at least a while. I found him superintending the repairing his road. He looked remarkably well and not at all as though he had been ill and he told me he weighs several pounds more than before his illness. It grew more windy and cooler in the afternoon but we took a short walk. They so urged me to stay to dinner that I did so although I intended to return at 5 we had a nice talk over the wood fire both before and after dinner and they seemed to enjoy my visit. I came away at 8.30 and reached my room at 10. I found here a note from Eastman with a letter of Daltons enclosed which I had sent him thinking it was Royal Reeds, saying he could make nothing out of it at which I was not surprised. I have written him again and sent the letter.
