Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 3, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Thursday, June 3, 1886 Rained this morning. When it ceased I drove the team up to Kingston and spent the whole forenoon in Luke Minor's Blacksmith shop while he shod the horses, among his queer customers, his pictures of scantily clad actresses, his primitive surroundings. Drove to the Strand to the post office and did not get home until near dinner time. After dinner went down to Storrs and got half a dozen more tomato plants which I set out and sowed some sweet peas in place of those I sowed a month ago, and picked the strawberries. It has been cold all afternoon. I am reading Pendennis and mean to read more than usual this summer. A letter from Mrs. Monnell.
