Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, October 21, 1880, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, Oct 21, 1880 Mary and I visited Sanfords grave yesterday. Flowers were already growing on it and were fresh and bright in spite of the cool frosty weather. This morning we took a walk in Phoenix's woods and went to the church to see Mr & Mrs. Sawyer who are to come down here tomorrow night and Mary is to come on Saturday to stay over Sunday. I came home by the noon train. Put up my stove and set my room in order. Went over to the cemetery and set out some sweet brier that I got on our ride on Tuesday. The flowers Sara and I put there last Thursday were still fresh and pretty. A letter from Pell and one from Menger with his bill for framing Giffords pictures which I certified and returned. Wrote a note to the Century Com. on admissions for Bispham and a note to him, a letter to Beard and a long letter to Holt.
