Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, June 9, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Wednesday, June 9, 1886 Awoke with a dull feeling in my head and have been pretty quiet all day, reading in Henry Esmond. Sara and I called at the Cantines this evening. Cantine thinks Sam would like to buy our place but thinks his wife wants to stay where she is, and is inclined to think they will eventually have that place, which I doubt. I was careful what I said as he is Sams lawyer but I said I would rather sell to Sam than any one else, and that I should sell smaller lots as I had opportunity and if I should do this it would spoil the place for him. Mrs. Cantine was over here this morning and we talked a little on immortality of which she has doubts.
