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

Sunday, May 2, 1886 Went home by morning train. The apple blossoms are out but not at their height, Tom has the garden nearly all planted and we are having asparagus. The country is lovely now. John McEntee came up in the evening. He had been trout fishing out in Mink Hollow and sent us up a nice little mess. Sara had a letter from Lucy in which she told her she had written to Laura, and repeated some things she said to her which struck me as very sensible and judicious. Sara has had a letter from Laura since Laura received Lucys letter in which she expresses regret for having written the letter to Sara a year ago. Her penitence however does not seem to me very earnest; the letter strikes me as artful and there is too much defense of herself besides some unkind and exaggerated statements concerning her Aunt Mary. I have advised Sara not to be in a hurry to answer it.
