Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 6, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, July 6, 1884 A bright breeze day after the rain. Calvert, Girard, Jamie and I took a walk over beyond the tunnel. They crossed the bridge while Park and I went on the hill over the tunnel. We came home through the cemetery. The flowers are not doing very well and another year I think I will have the grass sodded. The morning glories on Gussies grave are beginning to grow. I wrote to Mrs. Sawyer today. Calvert went to N. Y. by the 7.10 W. S. train and Downing to Yonkers by the Hudson River road. Girard told me this evening that Marsus Turcks lot near his has been sold to Frank Griffiths. This has made me feel more happy because considerable money is due us upon it and its payment will be a great help to us. I hope there is no mistake about it.
