Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 2, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, June 2, 1884 Today I dug up the bulbs of the tulips etc. in my mothers flower garden to separate them and put them out again this fall. I puttied the cracks in the kitchen floor and oiled it. The hooks came for the pictures and Sara, Cousin Rachel and I hung the pictures in the sitting room and the parlor so that those two rooms are all in order now. It has been a most lovely day. I had a letter from Perry regarding the Art Union. He got $500 from Huntington and $250 from Eastman Johnson and says all is comfortable for the summer, so that I will not have that to worry over.
