Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 18, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, July 18, 1886 Wrote to Mrs. Steele this forenoon. The house seems as it used to with Lucy and her family here. My father sat on the front porch but he seemed silent and feeble. I think perhaps he has not yet become accustomed quite to the larger family. We have had showers and towards evening it grew cool. I think John finds it dull here and Lucy says he already proposes to go to his post in two months instead of taking four months leave. I regret I am not in a position to do something for their entertainment.
