Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 9, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, June 9, 1880 Went down town this morning to get my hair cut and to do some errands. After I came back made a seat to my camp stool and then went over to my studio and began another sketch for "Telling the bees" with a figure in white but somehow I can do nothing satisfactory. However I do not worry over it and hope to do better. Sara and I took some roses and put them on dear Gertrudes grave. She loved roses and I never see them that they do not vividly recall her. We called down at John McEntees in the evening but he was out and we only saw Nannie.
