Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 24, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Aug 24, 1884 The wind has been from the North today with a rich, brilliant atmosphere and a delightful temperature. Calvert and I walked out over the Common beyond the cemetery and came back through it. The morning-glories had entirely covered Gussies grave with a thick rich mass of vines and flowers. My mothers and Maurices the same although not so thickly. The Nasturtiums on Gertrudes grave were in bloom but I think next year I will put morning-glories on all of them as being simpler and more satisfactory. I went down to John McEntees after dinner. He and Julia were there Nannie having gone up to Clermont. After tea they came up here. Frank Anderson and Harry Crispell were here but left early. Presently Fred Norton and Annie came having driven down from High Falls. They spent the evening and went home with John & Julia who goes to Montreal tomorrow.
