Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 17, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Sunday, Apr 17, 1887 Came home last night by 4 oclock train. Cold this morning with North wind. After breakfast I walked over to Chester St to see what the men had accomplished. Not as much as I hoped but I suppose all I could expect. I presume I will have to stop now as Henry is to go to work on the dock and I have not the money to go on with the work. Milton Holmes came up while I was there. He thinks I will sell lots as soon as the street is graded. My father is very feeble and Sara thinks his helplessness increases. She found him on the floor a few days ago where he had fallen in trying to help himself and she thinks he has been more feeble since.
