Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, November 30, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Nov 30, 1884 I commenced an inventory of our effects in the house today. Girard recommended me to do so so as to know what we have in case of fire. I catalogued the parlor, South Hall, sitting room, long hall, my mothers room and the dining room. It is no small task, and I have not got half through. After dinner Sara and I went down the hill and called on Sam Coykendall and his wife. Sam and the Major have had an open rupture in the newspaper but nothing was said about it today. We also called on poor old Aunt Ann who seemed very feeble to me. John & Nannie were here when we came home. I have felt more serene and quiet today a feeling which I hope will last. Sara and I are going to N. Y. tomorrow and Mary is to stay here with my father. I hope to get settled in my room this week.
