Tuesday August 5, 1879

Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Tuesday, August 5, 1879, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

The weather is very warm but tempered by a breeze here on the hill. I painted the window at my studio and Frederick cut down some trees, among them the tulip tree in front of the house. It gave me a pang to see it fall for I could not help associating it with darling Gertrude, but it was in the way and it is better now that it is gone.
