Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 2, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, Aug 2, 1886 Cool and delightful with wind from N. W. I propose to note the weather each day this month. My observation for several years leads me to consider August a cool month and I want to particularly note this month. Sara went down by the Powell this morning to visit Mrs. Knight at Millets Point. She needs rest and recreation. I heard Tom drive off. It rained last night and the weather was doubtful when she started but came off fine and cool. I have felt a little more quiet today. I have only smoked once a day for several days and today not at all. I think I will not smoke at present until I feel a little less disturbed for although I am a very moderate smoker I think perhaps it aggravates a tendency to nervousness and unquiet.
