Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 2, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, June 2, 1886 Drove the team up to Kingston to get them shod but there were so many ahead of me that I could not wait. Came home and drove out to Storrs and got a dozen egg plants, a dozen pepper plants and 25 cauliflowers. When I got back took Janette down to the ferry to take the day boat to meet Mary from whom we had a letter this morning saying she would expect her. I telegraphed her from Kingston. Came home again and a little after noon got my father in the wagon and he, Sara and I drove up to the West Shore Station for Mrs. Swan who came up from N. Y. After dinner I set out the plants while Tom was replanting the beets most of which as usual have failed. It has been a windy, depressing day with a sort of fog, and I have had a heavy heart worrying over all sorts of anxieties. I feel so differently from last year at this time because I have no resources and I look to the summer with all sorts of forebodings.
