Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, September 21, 1886, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Sept 21, 1886 Another autumnal day. We have had a fire all day in the parlor and my father has remained in his room. I had another letter from Whittredge urging me to come out to Arkville. Also a letter from Bowyer. I wrote to Mary and have kept pretty quiet. My colors came from N. Y. I am going to have a note of $400 discounted if I can and trust to the future to meet it, but I dread it for it will come due just about as our taxes are due. I dont know what else to do and I must do something. John, Lucy and Sedgwick are going to Wilmington tomorrow and it will be lonely enough after they are gone. I try to keep from troubling but am far from contented. Mr. Goodman sent me a little pamphlet containing his remarks at Platts funeral. Mr. Durand was buried today from New York. I wish I could have gone to his funeral.
