Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Wednesday, November 20, 1878, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

It has been a grey day with a little rain in the morning. Robinson came however with two men and we hoisted the staff in position and this evening had two thirds of the concrete in. It is very satisfactory and tomorrow we hope to finish it. I have worked pretty hard at it but all this interests me and keeps my thoughts from myself. I had a very sweet and friendly letter from Mrs. Weir. Wrote to Mr. & Mrs. Weir.
