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

Saturday, May 31, 1884 Busy about many things. We took the furniture out of the parlor and cleaned it but could not arranged it for lack of the hooks to hang the pictures. Mrs. Swan went back to N. Y. It has been warmer today. Many things in the garden are frozen. On Wednesday I destroyed a great many letters which had accumulated so that [?] a great incumbrance. It cost me a pang but I thought it best to do it.
