Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, August 29, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Aug 29, 1886 Some sense of repose today and I have enjoyed our all being together, Lucy and her family, Mary, Calvert and Sara. I wonder what disturbing and desponding element will come in tomorrows experience. I wrote to Alice. It has been very hot and the leaves are falling from the Elm in front of the house and lie in the road almost as thick as in Autumn. The steamer Daniel Drew burned at the Point today and tonight there is a large fire to the North and apparently about a mile away, at first suggesting the Alms House.
