Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 20, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, June 20, 1880 I have been trying for a long time at intervals to make a will and have found it exceedingly difficult to decide what disposition to make of my effects. Today I put into form what I have decided upon and I feel a sense of relief, but there are so many things to consider that even the disposal of so limited an amount of property as I possess, is a matter which taxes ones ingenuity to the utmost. John and Nannie came up this evening. It rained a little this afternoon. I am troubled and undecided as to what I ought to do about going to England with Booth, but I hope after I see him I will be able to decide what my duty is. Mary and I are to go down by day boat tomorrow.
