Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 23, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, June 23, 1884 I picked a great quantity of cherries this forenoon and this afternoon had several boys at it. My profits from sales over the expenses of picking after tugging at a heavy ladder all day and ruining one of my shirts are $1.84. I wasnt educated for this twopenny trade and shall retire from the business. Finished my letter to Booth and told him I was going to try to sell the place. A letter from Mary in which she says she and Marion are coming up in the day boat Wednesday. Harry and Julia had had cards of congratulation from Edwin Booth and Miss Booth.
