Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 31, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, July 31, 1884 A grey day threatening rain with a little falling occasionally. I had a boy who picked cherries for me, take the early apples from one of the trees. Sent down to see if Tougue the grocer did not want them but he did not and I had my labor for my pains. Sara went down to Aunt Anns and got Mary Goetchins and Sarahs two children and took them for a ride and they came here to dinner. After dinner I took them up to the West Shore train for Catskill where they were going for a visit. I was impatient with my father and with Marion today and regret it as I always do when I am out of humor. John and Nannie called this evening.
