Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 30, 1881, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, May 30, 1881 Decoration Day. It was very showery all afternoon and interfered with the services. I took my mother, Mrs. Davis, Jimmy and little Walter Jones over to the cemetery to see the procession and the decorating the soldiers graves. There were a great many people there and I dare say there would have been more but for the rain. We did not stay long. I took flowers over this morning and put them on dear Gertrudes grave. Painted this forenoon and a little this afternoon. Wrote to Mrs. Fred Sawyer about her father. I did not send the letter to Whittredge as I have nearly concluded to go out to Nevada.
