Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Sunday, August 11, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Miss Lee and Maurice went to Claremont on Friday. I have been busy building a private "office" and varnishing the one horse wagon. Wrote to Booth a few days ago inviting him and his wife and Edwina up here any time this month. Received a letter from him yesterday saying they would come if convenient on Thursday evening and stay until Monday and pleased with the idea of making us a visit. Wrote him today and gave him a card of introduction to Capt. Anderson. We were all over at Johns this evening and ate a fine watermelon which Jansen Anderson brought over. Sara goes to Ocean Beach tomorrow with Nannie for a week and takes little Louis Anderson with her.
