Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 11, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, July 11, 1884 Fuller and I took a walk out over the commons to the "view" and at 11 o'clock I took him down to the ferry on his return to N. Y. I went over to the cemetery this afternoon and trained the morning glories over Gussies grave. They are growing nicely now and will soon blossom. They had also grown on Maurices grave and were becoming entangled with the balsams I set out there. I got some branches and trained them to it and also over my mothers grave. The flowers on Gertrudes grave do not seem to flourish, but still the place looks cared for and not neglected. Calvert came up by the Powell. He had been to Homer Morgans about putting the sale of our place in his hands. I cut this notice from the Tribune yesterday. I think Maurice was entitled to a share in this prize money but am not sure. I wrote to Phil Johnson yesterday to inquire about it.
