Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 1, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, June 1, 1886 Tom and I planted the okra today, some peas, a second planting of corn and some squash. It has been a perfect day and I have been busy. We took the carpet up in the sitting room and the old matting under it and put down the new matting which looks very nicely. I made a mistake somehow in cutting it although I took every precaution in measuring it, which came near spoiling it. Had a letter from Alice, and my father and Sara received an invitation to Mr & Mrs. De Groffs golden wedding on the 25th.
