Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 27, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Friday, June 27, 1884 Today has finished the cherries to my great satisfaction. It has been cool and delightful. I had a letter from Lucy and one from Pinchot asking me to prevent any action against Eno the defaulting president of the bank, in the Century as his resignation was supposed to have been forwarded. Mrs. Davis came up this forenoon. Lottie and Natalie Anderson called. Natalie is very pretty. I gave her one of my photographs and gave Lottie one of dear Gertrudes. Calvert and Marion came up on the Powell. I went down to meet them. They did not get up here until half past nine. Marion has her cat which will probably be a great nuisance. I have no patience with pampered pets of cats and dogs.
