Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 29, 1890, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, May 29, 1890 A fine breezy day, much like yesterday. The old German woman came after the things I gave her with a wagon and had a load. The carpenters came promptly, two of them and went to work at the alterations to the barn. Calvert arrived by the 7 o'clock train. He did not know when Downing was coming. We sat up waiting for him and Sedgwick until after 10 oclock and as I was very tired and lame I went to bed. I had got sound asleep when Downing rapped on my window and he asked if Sedgwick had arrived. I had just got asleep again when Sedgwick woke me up having left N.Y. by the 9 o'clock train.
