Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, April 26, 1887, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Tuesday, Apr 26, 1887 Up early to get Janette and Emily up to the 7 o'clock train on their way home. Sara and I drove them up. It rained very gently but cleared in the afternoon. They will reach home at 5.30. Afterwards I went to see Mrs. Folant. She has very little idea of what she wants but I tried to inform her as well as I could and she finally settled upon a design which I am to purchase in N. Y. Set Tom to work applying the fertilizer. I am most unhappy and every thing looks very discouraging to me, but I am not well and attribute some of my trouble to that; but I am back in the discouraged state I have been in so many times, and which grows harder to bear each time. Sara and I were invited to Kitty Sharpers wedding tomorrow, but Sara was only invited to the church while I was invited to the reception at the [?] which seemed so strange to me that I think there has been a mistake. I sent my congratulations, regretting I could not be present.
