Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, July 19, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Monday, July 19, 1886 I worked in the garden all forenoon until after 11 oclock when I drove Andrews and Jamie up to the station on their way to Wilmington where they have gone for ten days or a fortnight. After dinner I worked in the garden again until 4 o'clock getting very tired hoeing the weeds among the beets, which have grown into a wilderness while Tom is getting in the hay. He cut the hay on the lot over near Woods today. It should have been cut before. I feel very tired tonight and not a little depressed, but that I try to attribute to my fatigue. The weather is cool and delightful. We really so far have had only two or three hot days.
