Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, May 25, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, May 25, 1886 It has been a cool day with rain last night and this evening a fire on the hearth was very comfortable. I worked in the garden all forenoon planting flower seeds and replacing the melons and cucumbers eaten by the cut worms. I commenced to read Pardermis[?] this afternoon but my thoughts are too much on our affairs to get into a quiet mood, so different from the comparative freedom from anxiety of last year. I wrote to Annie Lee. The kitchen girl Katie shows signs of discontent and I should not be surprised if she leaves.
