Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 16, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, June 16, 1886 No developments today regarding the sale of [Clantop?]. I talked with my father about what had been said and done and asked him if he would take $30,000 for the whole place if it were offered. He said he would hate to but upon the whole he thought he would as it would put us in an independent position. He talked very sensibly and intelligently about our affairs and hoped I would effect a sale being perfectly willing to go over to my place to live. Two men came and picked 4 quarts of cherries for which they paid me three cents a quart. I am full of the hope of selling the place, going through all the plans which occupied me a year ago. Received a letter from Kurtz. Wrote to T. W. Wood and a note to Eastman Johnson.
