Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 10, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday, July 10, 1880 Packed jellies and preserves to be sent to Hillsboro to Gussie this morning. Have written nearly all day beginning my article anew. Am not satisfied but with the best, which I am not equal to and so accomplish nothing. Heavy showers passed all about us giving us only a little from the edges. A letter from Lucy announcing Sara and Jamies safe arrival there on Sunday. A note from Marion Booth sending me her Uncle Edwins address and a letter from Jake Sharpe.
