Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 8, 1884, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Sept 8, 1884 Another warm day. Sara had a letter from Mary. The annex of their house had been on fire. There has been a large fire in Cleveland. I wrote to Mary a short letter. John and Nannie went out to Leggs Mill this forenoon to spend the day. After dinner Sara and I drove out there taking our tea with us. John and I fished but a thunder shower came up and we came ashore. Had no chance to take our tea and brought it home and ate it there. It is very warm and close tonight.
